‘Don’, the logo created for the Sandeman family in 1928 by George Massiot Brown. The cape was modelled on the attire worn by university students in Porto, while the wide-brimmed hat was a nod to the family’s presence in Jerez.
The Sandeman Vintage Port 2011 was bottled in April 2013 without fining or filtration and therefore is likely to throw a deposit in the bottle. Deep crimson right up to the rim. On the nose it entices with aromas of blueberry, cassis, cedar and cigar box as well as hints of nutmeg, saffron and black pepper. On the palate, the powerful tannins and elegant acidity support ripe red and black berry flavours and cedar notes from time in oak. The finish is persistent and memorable.
This Vintage Port comes in a beautifully presented branded wooden gift box.
