      I think the size of my turn value bet was small?
      and I 4 bet against his raise,should I just have called and allow him to bluff?
      I did not want flush draw or set to get river card easily

      you played it fine. I think people rarely bluff raise the Turn light, especially a 15/11 nit. I wouldn't want to lose action on bad Turns and Rivers (club improves us but loses our action, diamonds are bad, 8/7 may lose us action, pairing cards are bad).

      Given we are deep we should just reraise and hope to cooler his set. I don't see any other option.

      As it played out, I think
      SB may be bluffing (rarely)
      Maybe he hero folded something like bottom set (55) or two pairs cos you are rarely/never bluffing.

      But then again, how often do you see people herofold sets? I would think not very often, even for this stack depth.
