Quinta do Seixo Vintage Port

Quinta do Seixo Vintage Port is deep purple in colour, with intense aromas of cherry, raspberry, plum and blue berries; coupled with spicy notes of pepper and nutmeg, and a hint of cedar wood. It has a taut structure, with excellent firm tannins, good acidity and red-fruity spicy flavours on the palate, with a long smooth finish.

‘Don’, the logo created for the Sandeman family in 1928 by George Massiot Brown. The cape was modelled on the attire worn by university students in Porto, while the wide-brimmed hat was a nod to the family’s presence in Jerez. Today, the wines are good enough to be every bit as famous as the image of the Don. Since Sogrape bought Sandeman in 2002, the major improvements and investment that has taken place in the vineyards and the winemaking has seen the wines rise to the top of the tree in Port. The production of Port – especially Tawny – requires patience and a long-term vision, something which explains why families like the Guedes are among the major players in the Port business today.

Sandeman Quinta do Seixo 2013 is made at the Quinta do Seixo winery from grapes from different sections of the Quinta’s vineyards. Gentle crushing and partial destemming was followed by intense maceration during the alcoholic fermentation. The maceration was done by treading in traditional granite lagars (shallow fermentation troughs). The wine remained in the Douro until the following spring, when it was transported to Vila Nova de Gaia to embark upon the traditional ageing process in oak vats. Its development in its first two years of life was carefully monitored under the winemakers’ watchful eyes.

The winter of 2012/2013 was cold and rainy, as was the spring. Temperatures in the summer were lower than usual with very low rainfall. The vines were behind schedule and remained so, right up to the vintage, which began on average around 8-10 days late. Rainfall, including some very heavy downpours, disrupted picking at the end of September and early October.

Mas Amiel Maury Vintage Rouge 2016

Mas Amiel Maury Vintage Rouge is made in the same style as the rimage wines of Banyuls. From 100% Grenache Noir grown on the southfacing broken schists and marne soils and yields of 25 hl/ha, the grapes are subsequently sorted, destemmed and vinified in the normal way. The alcohol is added while the wine is still in the vat (mutage sur les grains), which slows down the final fermentation, allowing a longer period of maceration and thereby conferring greater richness. This Maury is ruby with violet tints and the nose eloquently expresses framboise, cherry and crème-de-cassis. It is smooth in the mouth, the red fruits reinforced by bitter chocolate and spice as well as fine tannins. 0.75l bottle. This fleshy, yet refreshing, fruity wine is a perfect match for red fruit or chocolate desserts. It is a seductive, pure Grenache varietal that also pairs well with sweet and sour dishes.

Fonseca Siroco White Port

Pale, straw colour. A superb balance of ripe fruit, delicate acidity and elegant notes of wood aging. Full and fruity on the palate this wine has a glorious lingering finish and an attractive, refreshing crispness. Fonseca Siroco is traditionally enjoyed as an aperitif, served chilled in a white wine glass. It can also be poured over ice in a high ball glass and topped up with tonic water and a leaf of fresh mint or a slice of lemon as a refreshing summer long drink.
