Fonseca is a young port house but already has gain the reputation of a Premium Vintage Port producer with their wines ranking amongst the best. They are now a pioneer of organic and sustainable viticulture in the Douro Valley.
Very fresh and elegant vintage port with intense blackcurrant fruits, and first hints of maturity. Incredible balance of fine fruit and the first hints of bottle maturity.
“Hold on to your hat. This is the best Fonseca since 1977 – probably even better than that of the legendary vintage – more like the breathtaking 1948. Masses of color, aroma and fruit flavor. Big, full bodied and very sweet, with tons of tannins and a sweet finish.” – 100 Pts James Suckling, The Wine Spectator, April 1997
