WINEMAKING 

Sandeman Porto Founder's Reserve is produced by the traditional Porto Wine method. The hand picked grapes undergo stalk-removal and crushing before fermentation, under controlled temperature, with skin maceration so as to extract the best components. The addition of wine alcohol at the ideal moment sets the balance between the wine's body and bouquet. This moment is chosen by the winemaker following strict control of fermentation temperatures and densities, the later depending on the vine variety, maturation stage and the final sweetness required. 

MATURATION 

After the harvest, the wines remain in the Douro until the following Spring, when they are taken to V.N.Gaia and enter Sandeman's centuries-old lodges for ageing in oak wood casks, as required by Porto Wine traditional ageing system. Throughout the years the wines are carefully tasted and analysed by the oenology team who also makes all necessary corrections and prepares the final blend so as to keep Sandeman Porto Founder's Reserve´s style and character. The wines selected are usually between 3 and 5 years of age, providing for a mature and intense wine with an average age of 4 years. The final blend is filtered and cold-stabilised prior to bottling. 

STORE 

The bottle should be kept upright, protected from light and humidity, at a constant temperature of 16ºC-18ºC. 

SERVE

ENJOY Excellent on its own served in large glasses, Sandeman Porto Founder's Reserve is a perfect match with cheeses or rich chocolate desserts.
