Description

The 1988 Fonseca Guimaraens from the very good vintage has a deep red/burgundy colour with a with narrowbrick rim. Rich, jammy fruit bouquet. Aromas of prune and treacle. Some attractive bottle
mature notes coming through. Full, intense palate with firm fresh fruit flavours. Attractive rich, rounded wine with good texture. Firm dark chocolate finish.

In the early 1950’s, the rising demand for vintage ports led Fonseca
Guimaraens to create a second vintage port under the ‘Guimaraens’ label
in ‘non-classic’, or undeclared years. Guimaraens vintage port is
produced from the same three Fonseca quintas in the Cima Corgo which
provide the backbone of Fonseca’s vintage ports in declared years.
Because they are produced from wines from the same sources as the
classic Fonseca vintage ports, Guimaraens vintage ports consistently
show the classic Fonseca style.
