Like many others port producers in Douro, Sandeman decided to vintage its 2015 . Produced with the Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Sousão varieties, along with several grapes originating from Vinhas Velhas,
Quinta do Seixo Vintage Port 2015 was elaborated from a careful selection of grapes originating from the vineyards of Quinta do Seixo, and produced in its modern winery.
“Above all, this vintage is the result of superior quality grapes harvested in 2015 at Quinta do Seixo, which will enrich the Sandeman brand’s selection for port wine’s most discerning consumers,” says Luís Sottomayor, the winemaker who created this exceptional wine. “Not only did the grapes have perfect levels of ripeness, but the wine also showed an exceptional degree of development.”
George Sandeman, a director at Sogrape Vinhos and member of the seventh generation of the family who founded the brand, says that “this second vintage of Quinta do Seixo, following the 2013 vintage, is again positive proof of this property’s outstanding fruit, which guarantees consistent quality in Sandeman’s future vintages of port.”
