SANDEMAN Tawny Porto (Estd 1790)
An amazingly versatile wine, ranging from pale, delicate, bone-dry wines to very rich and instensely sweet and a great partner to food.

Port wine is perhaps the most misunderstood wine in Germany, often associated with keeping grandmother happy at Christmas! However, Port wine is in fact Portugal's most labour intensive and complex wine, made by a unique method of cross blending new and old wines in a network of barrels known as the solara system.

Liquorice and raisins dominate the palate of this deliciously luscious Port wine.
Be prepared for intense flavour that is well supported by a plethora of nuanced dried fruit.

...SANDEMAN is a Portuguese Port Wine and not a Spanish Sherry, I believe, sorry...

Port wine and sherry are fortified wines used popularly consumed after dinner or as dessert wines. Port is made from grapes grown in the Douro region in Northern Portugal, while sherry is made from white grapes in a town in Spain.
The production of sherry in the Jerez area of Spain has been reported since 1100 BC. Sherry was introduced to the rest of the world by Christopher Columbus and later become popular in 1587. Due to the large wine export to the UK, many English companies and British families developed and founded cellars in Jerez region.

I appreciate the Port wine (Sandeman) and I like also the spanish sherry and the italian Marsala. In Greece we have also a similar called Mavrodafni, all in the same familly of apperitif wines.

There are two main styles of port: Ruby and Tawny. Ruby ports age in the bottle
while tawnies are aged in cask and pick up some of the characteristics of the
wood.

There are two basic types of Sherry, fino and olorosso. Fino is pale, dry and
tangy. It gets very little oxygen during the fermentation process because in the
vat it is covered with a thin layer of yeast called "flor." Olorosso is darker and
has a decidedly nutty character. It is prevented from developing flor, so that
oxygen can mix with the wine. This oxygen gives olorosso its darker color and
richer flavor.
