For­ti­fied Nec­tar

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life -

The house of San­de­man is re­leas­ing a rare woodaged port, Cask 33. It’s a for­ti­fied wine aged more than 50 years in wooden casks, with most of the port com­ing from the renowned 1963 vin­tage. “This is the 225th an­niver­sary of San­de­man and we thought that we should of­fer some­thing spe­cial to cel­e­brate,” says Ge­orge San­de­man, the head of the win­ery. San­de­man Cask 33 of­fers an amaz­ing rich­ness of fruit and com­plex­ity of cit­rus, cream, flan, butterscotch and cherry char­ac­ter. It re­mains clean and bright for a for­ti­fied wine left so long in the bar­rel. Only about 400 bot­tles were pro­duced; each is in­di­vid­u­ally num­bered and comes in a spe­cial case.
