More information Oporto Sandeman Founder's Reserve 1 Liter Red Wine
Sandeman Porto Founder's Reserve is produced by the traditional Porto Wine method. The hand picked grapes undergo stalk-removal and crushing before fermentation, under controlled temperature, with skin maceration so as to extract the best components. The addition of wine alcohol at the ideal moment sets the balance between the wine's body and bouquet. This moment is chosen by the winemaker following strict control of fermentation temperatures and densities, the later depending on the vine variety, maturation stage and the final sweetness required
After the harvest, the wines remain in the Douro until the following Spring, when they are taken to V.N.Gaia and enter Sandeman's centuries-old lodges for ageing in oak wood casks, as required by Porto Wine traditional ageing system. Throughout the years the wines are carefully tasted and analysed by the oenology team who also makes all necessary corrections and prepares the final blend so as to keep Sandeman Porto Founder's Reserve´s style and character. The wines selected are usually between 3 and 5 years of age, providing for a mature and intense wine with an average age of 4 years. The final blend is filtered and cold-stabilised prior to bottling.
Named in honour of the Founder, this Reserve is one of Sandeman´s greatest Portos. Selected from the finest «lots» of each vintage and aged for 5 years. Full of the power, fruit and fire that distinguishes classic Porto, Sandeman Porto Founder's Reserve is the culmination of two hundred years of expertise.
