S80. A major change in style relative to older Sandemans.

Dark red, 80% opaque. To taste dark cherry, and then a Dow dryness from the mid-palate to the end.

90% opaque, sold in colour, mid-red in tone. The nose is dominated by sweet fruit that has a promising concentration. The fruit impact is intense, youthful and vigorous; full of ripe red cherry but supported by gentle tannins and focussed acidity. Cherry and chocolate aftertaste and a long, dry cherry-stone finish. Very impressive. Yet another indication of the strength of the 1980 vintage. 88/100.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
