Fonseca Port

fonseca-vintage-port
Fonseca Port : Fonseca Guimaraens, often simply called Fonseca, is one of the largest Port wine houses in Portugal. Manuel Pedro Guimarães established the company in 1822. Although Fonseca is now owned by Taylor Fladgate, David Guimarães, the great-great-great grandson of the founder Manuel Pedro is the head winemaker, and oversees the winemaking and blending.
In the last 40 years, Fonseca has consistently produced outstanding vintage ports with resounding successes in 1963, 1970, 1977, 1985, 1992, 1994 and 1997, which has created demand and, as a result, it can command the highest prices.
Long-lived, the vintage wines are renowned for their quality and intensity of fruit, sheer opulence, structure and balance to last for decades.

Fonseca Port, 2012

Guimaerens Vintage Port HALF BOTTLE 37.5cl

Half bottle 37.5cl

Reviews
"A deeper hue with more opacity from this Port, the product of blending different estates (the other two are single quinta/estate vintage Ports). It’s more robust too with a charge of powdery, textured tannins behind its ripe plum and dried fig fruit with just a hint of tobacco. The most “traditional” in feel and, following Guimaraens’ masterclass, I’m certainly more conscious of the savoury dimension which Tinta Amarela seems to bring to the blend. Very good."

Fonseca Port, 2011

Vintage Port Half Bottle 37.5cl

Fonseca declares its vintages only in the most exceptional of years, and in 2011, like many, Fonseca benefitted from a perfect ending to the growing season, ensuring optimum ripeness for their grapes. This allowed deep, powerful and aromatic wines to be made on each of the Fonseca Quintas in the Távora and Pinhão valleys. 2011 has thus given Fonseca another opportunity to express the best characteristics of its vintage port to conoisseurs: its concentration of black fruits, its firm tannic grip, its dense velvety texture and its vibrant aromatics. It bears the promise of many years of development in bottle.

Fonseca Port, 2008

Fonseca Guimaraens Vintage Port- CASE OF 6x75cl

Very deep purple black with violet highlights. As would be expected of a Guimaraens Vintage Port, the first impression on the nose is of a powerful detonation of blackberry, cassis, strawberry and woodland fruit. These exuberant berry aromas are seasoned with notes of coffee, treacle and spice and surrounded by a fragrant balsamic aura of gumcistus and mint. The intense fruit flows through the palate like a thick blackcurrant coulis. The palate is supported by a taut fabric of closely woven tannins and the long finish resounds with a final blast of sumptuous ripe berry flavour.
