There are few more iconic images in the world of wine than the ‘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. Today, the wines are good enough to be every bit as famous as the image of the Don. Since Sogrape bought Sandeman in 2002, the major improvements and investment that have taken place in the vineyards and the winemaking has seen the wines rise to the top of the tree in Port. The production of Port – especially Tawny – requires patience and a long-term vision, something which explains why families like the Guedes are among the major players in the Port business today.
A Vintage Port from one single harvest but most importantly from one single estate – Quinta do Seixo in the Cima Corgo region of the Douro valley. With over 30% of the blend coming from 100 year old vines, it has a distinct and unique character.
Deep red in colour, almost opaque. Intense aromas of cherries, cedar and chocolate, with spicy notes of black pepper and clove. It has a taut structure with firm tannins, good acidity and spicy red fruit flavours. The finish is long, with plenty of character.
