THE WINE
Singled out for its exceptional characteristics, Sandeman Porto Vintage 2016, a wine from a single year, will age in the bottle for 30 or 40 years. This outstanding 2016 Vintage Porto is an example of Sandeman's commitment to quality Porto winemaking.

TASTING NOTES
This award-winning Vintage Port has an opaque, almost black color. The aroma is intense and complex, with prominent notes of well-ripened black fruit and resin, as well as hints of cocoa and chocolate as a result of its excellent maturation. Great volume on the palate, with a vibrant and fresh acidity, firm high-quality tannin's, floral notes of rock rose and hints of black fruit and chocolate. A great invitation for a very long and elegant finish.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM:
"This is a ripe and generous wine, with tannins that are well integrated into the powerful black-fruit core. It is rich in a black plum flavor that's cut by fine acidity. Complex, balanced and full of long-term potential, drink this impressive wine from 2029."
WE99 Wine Enthusiast

Densely packed, with baker's chocolate up front, followed by muscular black currant, fig and blackberry paste flavors. Shows brambly grip, with flashes of apple wood and Turkish coffee. Best from 2035 through 2055.
WS96 Wine Spectator

"The 2016 Vintage Porto is a mostly an equal blend of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, with various others comprising the last 20% of the juice. It comes in with 95 grams of residual sugar. This was in bottle about two months when tasted. Dark in color, with fine and expressive fruit, this shows intensity of flavor more than pure power. The fruit demonstrates nice lift as it opens with air. As with the Offley, this is a very nice success in this vintage, showing me fine fruit and reasonable structure. The concentration is good too, but it's not quite as impressive as the first two components. It is still excellent overall, the most exuberant of the three Sogrape Portos. We'll see how it ages and develops. For the moment, it is worth leaning up."
