Three Vintages of Fonseca Port Presented in Wooden presentation box with a History of Fonseca Hardback Book
1985 Fonseca Vintage Port
This has a lovely nose of maturing port, finely styled and just screaming quality. The palate carries a svelte texture, with a creamy, flattering character. There is purity, balance, a clean, bright quality and despite this lots of appealing grip. This has great impact, and yet is so welcoming and alluring. Excellent wine, and a great example of the vintage. (November 2006).
Dense ruby/purple with the Oriental spice-box aroma, the 1985 is an expansive, sweet, broadly flavored wine with outstanding depth, concentration, and balance. It finishes with a solid lashing of alcohol and tannin. Parker, Buying Guide 1989
Parker rating 90/100 (outstanding)
1998 Fonseca Panascal Port
In years when Fonseca does not ‘declare' a classic vintage, it selects the finest grapes from its own vineyards to yield a small quantity of this wine, which is produced exactly as a declared Fonseca Vintage. Beautifully structured and perfectly balanced this is an earlier maturing style than the classic vintage port.
Restrained on the nose, with licorice-like richness beneath; opulent, broad and sweet with fresh berry fruit and a touch of dark chocolate and spicy, peppery tannins on the finish.
2008 Fonseca Guimaraens Port
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.
