Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Sandeman 30 Years Old Tawny Porto

Sandeman 30 Years Old Tawny Porto NV presents itself with a deep amber color, indicative of its prolonged aging process. On the nose, it unfolds a complex bouquet of aromas, featuring rich notes of dried fruits such as figs, dates, and apricots, accompanied by hints of toasted almonds and a subtle touch of toffee. There's a delicate integration of wood and spice, contributing to the overall depth and sophistication.

The palate reveals a well-rounded and velvety texture, showcasing the culmination of decades-long maturation. Flavors of caramel, hazelnuts, and dried fruits intertwine seamlessly, creating a harmonious and indulgent profile. The sweetness is balanced by a nuanced acidity, providing structure and preventing the taste from becoming overly saccharine. The finish is enduring, leaving a lasting impression of the wine's intricate layers and refined elegance.

Critic Ratings

Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 94:
This is a beautifully concentrated wine. Rich and dense, it offers dried fruits, spice and intensity. The wine’s spirit edge acts as a lift, bringing out acidity, honey, walnuts and a complex perfumed aftertaste. Drink now

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 94:
The NV 30 Years Old Tawny Porto is a typical Douro blend. It was bottled in August 2022 with a Vinolok stopper and 121 grams per liter of residual sugar. Complex and darker in flavors, yet still lively and fresh, this elegant 30 Year first shows its age when it coats the palate and proves how concentrated it is. It is remarkably delicious too, with the dark chocolate and caramel-laced fruit slammed into the palate. The melted chocolate of the 20 Year leans more to dark chocolate here, but it never goes too far in the direction of bitter. If it often seems mature, it never seems old. It's always enlivening, and the structure might be even better that the fine flavor profile. It acquires a tightly wound feel and some power on the juicy, mouthwatering finish. This is a fine success. Best after 2022.

James Suckling Review - Rated 94:
Candied cherries and light caramel with honey and brown sugar on the nose. Dense and rich with plenty of mahogany and nutty undertones to the very sweet palate. Shows lots of age. Sort of dusty and aged, like old furniture in England. Drink now.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 93:
Pretty, with bergamot, date, fig and caramelized peach flavors gliding through, framed by a caramel note that lingers on the polished finish. This gains intensity as it opens in the glass. Lovely. Drink now.
