2000 Vintage Port


2000 Sandeman Vau Vintage Port, DOC Douro

Oh yes, it's that time of year for Vintage Port. Fruit and tannin, so concentrated it makes your eyes bug out . . . oh yes, long live Oporto.

Sandeman's one of those standby's, a company in business for so long that no thought has to be made off the shelf. You buy, and trust that you won't be poisoned. This one, with but 8 years of bottle age, shows a deeply purple colour, and intense fruit aromas. Good, crushy berries, minerals. Concentrated and everything I want in a young vintage Port. Got me sooooo buzzed, all love, all love.
