Fonseca Ten Year Old Aged Tawny (50cl)

During the January following each vintage, Fonseca sets aside a reserve of very concentrated, powerful vintage quality red ports, selected primarily from the firm’s own Quinta’s and judged according to their ageing potential. These are placed in cask and cellared. Tawny ports of age are blended across several vintages to maintain quality and continuity of style, and thus show an “apparent”, or average, age on the label rather than a vintage date. As tawny ports age, they grow lighter in colour, as they throw their deposit in the cask rather than in the bottle. Moreover, Fonseca cellars its aged tawnies in the Douro rather than in Vila Nova de Gaia; the considerable difference in heat and humidity between these two areas lends Fonseca’s tawny ports of age a very distinctive “baked” richness reminiscent of butterscotch. The Port is silky smooth, with subtle oak nuances that are balanced by a fresh acidity and tannic ‘grip’ that culminate in a long, elegant finish. Ideally serve chilled, this make a fabulous accompaniment for chocolate based desserts as well as mince pies, Christmas pudding and of course, cheese!

Behind the bottle: Fonseca

Founded in 1815, Fonseca is considered one of the leading Port Houses. Its Vintage Ports are noted for their luscious fruitiness which displays great opulence and complexity. Fonseca shipped its first Vintage Port to London in 1840, and by the mid-19th century had established the House’s wines as some of the most sought after in England. In 1874, they began to ship Crusted Port for the first time and they remain one of the few Houses to still produce this style today. Fonseca’s three quintas are at the heart of the House’s idiosyncratic style of Port. Quinta do Panascal was one of the first properties to have organically certified vineyards as early as 1992, whilst Quinta de Santo António is a prize-winning model of sustainable viticulture producing both grapes and olive oil. In 2002, Fonseca were the first to produce a fully organic Port, the Fonseca Terra Prima, produced from a specific vineyard plot managed by head winemaker David Guimaraens.One of the few Port producers to have maintained such consistency of quality and style over the years, Fonseca has built a loyal community of Port enthusiasts who value its individuality and the inimitable character of its wines.
