Description

Excellent Provence. These bottles of Fonseca 1985 Vintage Port have been shipped straight from Fonseca's Cellars in Oporto to our cellars in Fordingbridge. They are in perfect condition.

The 1985 Fonseca Vintage Port 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)

Michael Broadbent MW, The Great Vintage Wine Book II – 5 Stars
“Full bodied. Powerful. Still opaque; soft, sweet fleshy. Well endowed with fruit, alcohol and tannin for longevity. My style of wine. Magnificent. Drink 1998-2030. Potentially outstanding.”
