Wines from Sandeman's "A" rated Quinta do Vau are blended with wines selected from other "A" rated farms for their fruit and power. The soft tannins meld perfectly with the fruit to give a sensation of balanced power. After the second winter the wines are bottled and shipped.

”A great value port which featured in the top 100 Wine Spectator wines of 2000 Dark purple in color, with wonderful violet, berry and cherry aromas. Full-bodied, medium-sweet, with a solid core of fruit and tannins.” Wine Spectator

”Bright ruby. Fruity, ripe aromas of black cherry, blackberry and maple syrup. Not especially fleshy or sweet but juicy and intensely flavored, with notes of smoke, chocolate and orange peel. Finishes with lovely freshness and sneaky length.” Stephen Tanzer
