Created in 1815, Fonseca became famous with the release of the legendary 1840, first Vintage Port sold under their name.
Today, 3 Quintas, Quinta do Cruzeiro, Quinta de Santo António and Quinta do Panascal, in Douro Valley, are supplying grapes to produce Port.
The unique terroir of these Quintas gives to Fonseca a singular taste. Pioneer, Fonseca was the first Port House to offer a Port from organic grapes.
Tasting Notes: Inky purple colour. A complete nose, with impressive depth and background, displaying the concentrated and opulent fruitiness.
Rich blackcurrant and plum aromas overlaid with spicy and floral notes. Full bodied and velvety on the palate, with ripe chewy tannins providing firm grip to support the long fruity finish.
Food Match: Ideal with cheese especially blue veined.
Closure: Natural Cork
