Sandeman Tawny Port 20 year old
Wine EnthusiastSandeman's long-standing reputation for aged tawny Port is confirmed by this wine. It is poised between fresh fruit and spice, dried dates and a generous golden glow. The wine is at its peak and ready to drink.
Wine SpectatorA bright style, with ginger, singed orange peel, pecan, flan and persimmon flavors that are slightly higher pitched than most tawnies. Ends with fresh cut and focused drive. Drink now.
Wine AdvocateThe NV 20 Years Old Tawny Porto is a typical Douro blend sourced from juice ranging from 15 to 30 years old. It was bottled in September 2018 with a Vinolok cork and 115 grams per liter of residual sugar. This adds a little power and notable complexity to the 10 Year this issue, but it seems a little understated in concentration and surprisingly mature. The brandy is a bit prominent, but that improves. Its bright and gentle demeanor won't leave you with a "wow" impression, but it sneaks up on you and it's easy to like eventually. It showed better a few days later, at which point it was notably improved. Maybe some bottle shock plus travel shock before it was tasted rendered it a little closed at first. It finishes with classic flavors laced with caramel nuances.
