Deeply coloured, almost opaque, with hints of purple. Very intense aroma, with floral notes such as gum cystus and violet, bright red fruit, notably strawberry and raspberry, and spices, in particular pepper and clove – all adding up to serious complexity. The palate has good structure, well-balanced acidity and nicely-evolved tannins, with the floral aromas and red fruits still in evidence, and a long, harmonious finish.

In 1790 George Sandeman, an ambitious young Scotsman from Perth, founded a wine business in London. With a £300 loan he bought his first wine cellar and started trading in Porto and Sherry from Tom’s Coffee House. By 1795, he had established an agency in Cadiz, Spain and in 1811 he purchased an ageing cellar in V.N. Gaia in Portugal. In the early 1800s Sandeman wines were shipped to countries within Europe, North and South America, Africa, Asia and even as far as New Zealand. Sandeman was the first company to brand a cask. In 1805, Sandeman started fire branding their trademark GSC (George Sandeman & Co.) in a crow’s foot design on all pipes they sold, thus giving the wine a name that assured quality. At the end of the nineteenth century “brand” names were largely unheard of but Sandeman wanted to give their customers a guarantee of quality so in 1880 they became the first Porto House to export bottled and labelled wines. SANDEMAN 10 YEARS OLD TAWNY is a vibrant premium aged wine, a balance of ripe fruit oak aged intensity, which highlights SANDEMAN’S quality. Selected Portos wines are chosen for ageing in wooden vats and casks, concentrating all their fruit and flavour.
