Fonseca 1998 Guimaraens Port, Oporto Portugal
Fonseca port house dates back to 1815, and is the only house to have produced four 100 point wines. Consistency and complexity is what sets Fonseca apart from the other great port houses, and it is for these reasons that we select Fonseca as our guest port. In certain years when there is no classic Fonseca Vintage Port, a Guimaraens Vintage Port may be produced instead. Guimaraens Vintage Ports nevertheless share the origins, heritage and complex fruity style of the classic Fonseca vintages Ports.
