The Wine Selected from the lighter wines of each year, these Porto are chosen for ageing in small oak casks to develop their style. Sandeman's Tawny Porto has the fruit and style of great Porto, but with an added finesse. Pale in colour and light in body this Port is superb as a chilled aperitif, or accompanying an appetizer, yet satisfying when served at the end of a meal.
Tasting Notes Clear red amber colours with a light intense body, open up to aromas of vanilla and evolved dried fruits. The elegant harmony and fresh flavour of red fruits unfold in the mouth and combine with the complexity of wood ageing and a good finish.
Food Pairing Sandeman's Tawny Porto is a delicious accompaniment to any dessert with caramel, such as crème brulee or tarte tatin, or strong blue cheeses like Roquefort. To be more daring, match with foie gras or a creamy seafood vol-au-vent.
