From the website of the UK agents for Sandeman:
“There are few more iconic images in the world of wine than the ‘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. This hasn’t always been the case, but since Sogrape bought Sandeman from Seagram in 2002, the major investment that has taken place in the vineyards and the winemaking has seen them 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 and the Symingtons are the major players in the Port business today.”

Old Bridge rating:

This is a blend of barrels between 15 and 40 years old. The maturity is obvious but the freshness is remarkable. A relative bargain for fine wine of such an age

Press review:

Gold Medal at Decanter World Wine Awards 2019:
“A true charmer, with delicacy and fragrant notes of cucumber, orange zest and watermelon rind. Soft and elegant in texture, boasting treacly red and black fruits which envelop the palate”.
