Wine Enthusiast 91 Points Sandeman's aged tawnys have a definite dryness, the wood an important part of the wine. While they are dry, the weight of rich, dried fruit flavors gives a good balance. Acidity mingles with the fruit, enriching the burnt character, giving a wine that is intensely rich rather than sweet.
Specially selected Portos are chosen for ageing in wooden casks, gradual exposure to air, concentrates the flavours and matures the ruby colours to amber, creating the rare and delicious Sandeman 30 Years Old Tawny. The ageing process intensifies the fruit creating the complex flavours characteristic of Tawny Porto, a perfect ending to any meal and an inspiration for good conversation.
Old gold amber colors with the intense aromas of honey and spices, underscored with deep flavors of dried apricots, hazelnuts and vanilla, creating a rich yet elegant combination. Created to celebrate the bicentennial in 1990, Sandeman 30 Year Old Tawny is a tribute to the elegant complexity and liveliness of age. Perfect end to a meal. Blends with a good cigar and coffee.
Once open Sandeman 30 Years Old Tawny can remain fresh for up to 4 - 8 weeks.
Citrus zest accents provide a zesty backdrop to the lush, rich and creamy flavors of butterscotch, white chocolate and café au lait. Fresh and minerally on the finish, with notes of sea salt. Complex and pure. Drink now. - KM
