Sandeman

In 1805 Sandeman became the first port company to brand a cask with an iron brand, giving the wine a guarantee of quality. The Sandeman ‘brand’ was later registered as a trademark in 1877 making it one of the oldest in the world. The iconic figure of the Sandeman Don appeared on bottles in 1928, again one of the first such trademarks ever created.

Tasting Notes

Very deep ruby colour. Intense, extremely complex aroma, with notes of plum and blackberry, tabacco and cedar and a touch of mint, pepper and ginger and attractive hints of cocoa from its wood-ageing. It is a delightfully full-bodied wine, with evident but agreeable tannins, good, bright acidity, flavours of black fruits and chocolate, and a long, harmonious finish.

Food Matches

A perfect match for desserts rich in chocolate (mousses, parfaits, cakes and truffles), red fruit tarts and creamy cheeses. It can also be enjoyed on its own.
