    Winemaker's Notes:

    Sandeman Vau Vintage is an exceptional quality, modern style of Vintage Porto which can be enjoyed young, but will age well in bottle. With intense fruit aromas, rich fruit flavours reminiscent of plums and red fruits in the mouth, Sandeman Vau Vintage Porto 2000 is a superb match for chocolate desserts. Serve in large glasses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Firm, fresh and complex, with an array of glazed apricot, ginger, maple and cream flavors. Features notes of truffle and mineral on the crisp finish. Drink now.

    The dense purple-colored, seriously-structured 2000 Vau Vintage reveals outstanding ripeness in addition to abundant amounts of black currant, cassis, and mineral characteristics as well as firm tannin in the finish. Fuller-bodied, richer, and significantly more impressive than its sibling, it will drink well between 2007-2020.

    The Wine Advocate

    Sandeman's single quinta vintage is based around Quinta do Vau. Made in a deliberately fruity style, it is full of blackberry fruit jam flavors, with fleshy plums. The tannins are low-key, just showing through as a core of dryness. This is not a long-term aging vintage—best in 5–10 years.
