Sandeman LBV is produced by the traditional Port method, with a long, intense maceration during fermentation to extract tannin, colour and flavour from the skins.

On the nose, the wine is intense and complex with aromas of balsamic, rose, basil, red and black fruits, as well as spicy notes of black pepper. On the palate, this wine has a lively acidity and robust tannins, complemented by an incredibly balanced finish.

2013 was characterised by a cold, wet winter and spring leading to a delay in the vegetative cycle on the vine. Summer was warm and dry, and although there were heavy downpours at the end of September and start of October, they preserved quality and also enforced stoppages during the harvest. On average, the harvest began eight days later than usual. Despite these challenges, the resulting wines were of excellent quality.

The wines remained in the Douro until the spring when they were transported to Vila Nova de Gaia to mature in large oak vats. The final blend was created from wines that had been carefully selected by regular tasting and analysis.

Country Of Origin: Portugal

Long associated with quality, tradition and superiority in the wine world, The House of Sandeman was founded in 1790 and was the first to brand its barrels. The name was trademarked in 1877 making it one of the oldest brands in the world.

Sandeman was one of the first luxury brands to advertise. Famous for its Sandeman Don image: the black cloak and sombrero, in 1921, their luminous ad board was put up in Piccadilly Circus and caused somewhat of a stir. Sandeman's rich history and knowledge passed from generation to generation, enabling the brand to grow from strength to strength and in 1965, they began advertising on TV. Today 18 bottles are sold across the world every single minute!

Founder George Sandeman set up his original wine business with just £300 borrowed from his father. In 2002, The House of Sandeman joined corporate holding Sogrape Vinhos in Portugal and is now represented by seventh generation George Sandeman. The original cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia still exist today where 2000 casks continue to age.
