This wine was produced under the watchful eye of a team led by Luis Sottomayor, who is renowned for his ageing and blending of Port wines. The pinnacle, in terms of excellence, of Sandeman's range of Aged Tawnies, this blended wine consists of wines with an average age of 50-year-old. It forms part of a range of remarkable consistency that has won international acclaim.
"A bird of a different feather, this tawny Port features a high-pitched jasmine note along with a range of singed white peach, bitter almond, hazelnut husk, dried clementine and green fig flavors that glide through effortlessly, all carried by superfine acidity through a remarkably long and persistent finish that tilts to the dry side. Shows delicate sweetness, which lets the panoply of flavors play out unencumbered. Beautiful. Drink now. 230 cases made, 111 cases imported." Wine Spectator 96 Points
"Taking advantage of the newly created 50-year-old tawny category, this famous producer has launched a dense, intense Port. The wine's concentration is immense, wood and old gold flavors almost incidental in an age defying wine. Drink this fine wine now. " Wine Enthusiast 96 Points
