2003 Fonseca Vintage Port
Fonseca has belonged to the first rank of Vintage Port producers since the mid-nineteenth century.
Their ports are noted for their luscious fruitiness which develops great opulence and complexity with age. Wines born of inspired winemaking and a thorough understanding of viticulture and terroir, they appeal, perhaps more than any other house's Vintage Ports, to the enthusiast and connoisseur.
Vintage Ports represent the finest produce of a single exceptional year. Unlike Ports which age in wood, Vintage Ports will continue to age and improve in bottle for decades, their character bearing the imprint of both vineyard and wine maker.
A constant thread that runs through the history of Fonseca is the family's close involvement with the making of the firm's flagship vintage products.
Tasting Note: Fine deep colour with brick red edge. Good depth of nose, sweet and harmonious, some spirit on the nose, rich, soft touches of dark chocolate and cherry (cherry tomato). Harmonious, elegant wine, some fine structure with exciting hints of spice and mint, very focused fruit, soft. Powerful Vintage Port. Fine ripe fruit, good expression, cherry, a charming character.
Origin: Douro Valley, Portugal
