Created as an early drinking Vintage Port with more complexity than an LBV but more fruit and softer structure than a classic vintage, Sandeman Vau vintage is a standalone style in the Port world. Vibrant berry fruit, cassis and spices supported by good structure. The Vau Vintage 1999 has a deep ruby colour. It has an intense and complex bouquet on the nose with a prevalence of bright red fruits such as strawberries. In the mouth, rich plummy flavours with hints of strawberry are supported by structured tannins which give a firm backbone to the wine and will allow it to age for many years.
