  • Tasting Notes - A fruity old tawny, with plum and almond character and hints of honey and caramel. Medium-bodied, medium finish.
  • Descended from the fiery ruby Porto wines originally shipped by George Sandeman in 1790, Sandeman Ruby Porto is still made traditionally, to be rich and robust, yet with a special depth of flavour and the finesse, achieved by expertly blending wines from Sandeman's large and varied stock.
  • 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, Founders Reserve is the culmination of two hundred years of expertise.
  • Ready to consume on release, this non-vintage blended port shows the Taylor style and quality in a youthful, easily approachable wine.
  • 95 Points Wine Enthusiast - A superb wine, elegance and weight combined magisterially. It has all the right mature flavors, ripe fruit, intense marmalade and concentration. This is a wine with a great reputation, and the taste doesn't let that reputation down.
  • Taylor Fladgate were pioneers of the LBV category, developed to satisfy the demand for a high quality ready-to-drink alternative to vintage port for everyday consumption. Unlike vintage port, which is bottled after only two years in wood and ages in bottle, LBV is bottled after four to six years and is ready to drink when bottled. Taylor Fladgate continues to lead the LBV category of port worldwide, in spite of the fact that many other shippers now also produce an LBV. Taylor Fladgate LBV is the perfect finish to any meal. It does not need to be decanted and should be served in a generously proportioned wine glass so that its rich fruity nose can be enjoyed to the full. Excellent with fully flavored cheeses, especially blue cheeses such as Stilton or Roquefort. It is also delicious with desserts made with chocolate or berry fruits. Powerful, aromatic nose with lots of black fruit, plum and dark cherry. The floral and herbal notes that come through on the nose add lovely nuances to the bouquets. The palate is rounded, smooth and balanced. Flavours of blueberry and raspberry in abundance with a delicious touch of black liquorice. In true Taylor style the wine is well structured with big firm tannins that holds the wine nicely together. The finish is wonderfully long.
  • andemans Tawny Porto has the fruit and style of great Porto, but with an added finesse. Pale in colour and light in body this Port is superb as a chilled aperitif, or accompanying an appetizer, yet satisfying when served at the end of a meal.
  • Sandeman Rainwater Madeira is made in the traditional manner on the Atlantic island of Madeira, The rich soil and volcanic subsoil give this wine a unique character which is enhanced by the winemaking and ageing in "estufas". It is light in body but full in flavour, well balanced and a good accompaniment to many classic dishes such as soups and pates. It is also an essential ingredient in classic cuisine.
  • 90 points Wine Spectator: "A ripe style, with rich, well-integrated flavors of toffee, marshmallow and dried plum. Offers cream and butterscotch on the lush finish. Drink now." (Insider, 10/27/10) According to Wine Enthusiast: "This has richness and intensity of flavor. The sweet dried plums and prunes are steeped in caramel and just an edge of burnt acidity from wood. The finish is delicious and smooth." (02/09) 89 points Wine Enthusiast: "A fine balance between the nuttiness of aged tawny and ripe sweet fruit makes an attractive, mellow yet tangy wine. The sweetness is given liveliness by the final acidity." (12/10)
  • Maynards 20 Year Old Tawny Port is a concentrated and complex wine. It shows beautifully wood oak aromas, hints of vanilla and raisins combined with an attractive acidity. Its core is rich, full of fresh fruit yet, although the soft wood gives to wine a remarkable velvety texture that extends until the end.
  • This 10-Year-Old Tawny Port is beautifully silky, with ripe figgy flavours and a long finish. There are lovely aromas of dried fruit, nuts and honey, with hints of toffee, chocolate and fine oak. It's perfect with cheese or any pudding.
  • Colheita is a port from a single harvest, aged in oak casks for, at least, seven years and bottled by demand. The Maynard's Colheitas has been carefully selected and matured in seasoned oak casks to produce a rich mellowness with the finest balance and elegance of old tawnies.
  • Of an average cask age of ten years, it is a young port of russet color with brilliant crimson highlights and a fragrant, ripe-fruit bouquet. Its smooth, silky texture and subtle oak nuances are balanced by a fresh acidity and tannic ‘grip’ that culminate in a long, elegant finish. Winery
  • Bright, ripe, crushed red berry and plum fruit flavors mark this lively, direct young port, which is sweetly silky on the palate and supported by a crisp acidic backbone and soft background tannins.
  • This superb Late Bottles Vintage port is aged to full maturity in oak vats. It is then drawn off into bottle with no fining or filtration. As a result the wine loses none of its richness and concentration and preserves all of its natural fullness of body and flavor. As the wine is in filtered, a haze or light sediment may form after a year or two or if the wine is subjected to the cold. This is a natural process and its quite normal. If it occurs, the wine will benefit from being decanted.
  • 89 points Wine Spectator: "Chocolaty and plush, displaying good concentration to the tipe plum, mocha and dark cherry flavors, with paprika accents. Very fruity, with raspberry notes, on the finish. Drink now through 2016." (12/10) According to the Wine Enthusiast: "One of the big brands in Reserve Ports, Bin 27 is long and well established. So it’s good to report that it is great wine, with sweetness and balancing acidity and fruit. Soft and juicy it is ready to drink, but there are structure and flavors of dried raisins to give it some aging potential." (3/1/2005) According to Stephen Tanzer: "Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Mar/Apr '98: "Good medium-deep red. Aromas of red fruits, tar and smoked meat. Fat, lush and sweet; flavors of black cherry and earth. Slightly fiery but persistent back end."
  • Impressions of raisins and walnuts are married to silky, dried red berry and currant flavors and aromas in this lush, finely structured wine, which shows a velvety, mellow texture supported by fresh, clean acidic notes.
