2015 Sandeman Seixo

Post by AHB » 23:17 Wed 03 Jan 2018

15,000 bottles produced. 40-50% vinhas velhas with the balance of the grapes being Sousao and Touriga Nacional. Deep scarlet in colour. Sour cherry and black chocolate on the nose, with a nice touch of esteva. Rich, sweet fruit over very grippy toasted ripe tannins. Dark and chewy finish, long with black chocolate to the end. A big port with nice acidity and a good balance, a complete contrast to the 2013 vintage and to others from the 2015 vintage. 92-94/100. 06-Nov-17.
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
