Fonseca Crusted Port, bottled in 2015, Oporto Portugal

£22.00

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. Crusted port is rather rare form of port with only a handful of producers still making this style.

Tasting notes

The port is matured for a short time in barrel and then rested in the bottle for three years prior to release. During this period the sediment, which is always unfiltered, forms a crust in the bottle. Therefore giving you a “vintage character” without a vintage price tag. The complexity and layers of flavours are truly stunning. The rich characters of sweet blueberry and raisin are followed by subtle eucalyptus notes and a marzipan finish. Due to the youthfulness of this Port, decanting will indeed help develop flavours, but it is not vital as a ‘crust’ has yet to form.
