Winemaker Notes

Very deep purple with a narrow magenta rim. The nose is tight, with impressive depth and background. The base of brooding dark berry fruit is laced with liquorice and dark chocolate. Fleeting balsamic, plummy notes emerge as the nose gradually opens up. On the palate, the wine has exceptional weight and volume, supported by a mesh of thick, dense tannins. Luscious blackberry jam and plum flavors surge through into a seemingly endless finish. A powerful and uncompromising Unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage retaining every ounce of aroma and flavor.Excellent with fully flavored cheeses, especially blue cheeses such as Stilton or Roquefort. It is also delicious with desserts made with chocolate or berry fruits.

About Fonseca

Fonseca Port was founded in 1822 and grew rapidly in reputation and importance. Since its foundation, successive generations of the Guimaraens family have upheld the Company’s reputation. Today, Fonseca occupies a leading position as a specialist producer of quality wood ports and as one of the top vintage houses.

Fonseca may indeed be unique in the annals of Port in that every Fonseca vintage port in the last 100 years has been made by just four members of the Guimaraens family. The fourth member, David Guimaraens, continues the tradition having taken over from his father as winemaker in 1992. This remarkable continuity of winemaker is clearly evident in the wine. The company continues to foot tread every single grape grown in its three vineyards in granite stone troughs in the traditional way.
