Vibrant & Fruity Fonseca Terra Prima & Cheese

Vibrant & Fruity Fonseca Terra Prima & Cheese

For decades, Fonseca has remained a pioneer in the field of organic and sustainable viticulture. Fonseca terra prima was the first port to be produced entirely from organically grown grapes.

This is an elegant reserve port, displaying fresh vibrant fruit, in which organic viticulture has allowed the traditional port grape varieties to express their natural aromas to the full. A wonderfully rich, concentrated organic port with great flavour and texture. It is the perfect accompaniment for rich, savoury and creamy cheeses.

Country: Portugal
Region: Douro Valley
Grape Variety: A blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca Tinta Cão & Tinta Amarela

Nose: A wonderfully rich, concentrated wine with great flavour and texture. The opulent black fruit nose.

Palate: Layers of intense berry, plum and cherry fruit flavours are supported by firm, but well integrated tannins.

Finish: Deliciously textured; velvety, smooth. Succulent, rounded, plump. A lovely rich prolonged finish.

Cheese Characteristics:

Lincolnshire Poacher: The flavour and texture of the cheese varies both daily and seasonally depending on time of year. Typically boasts a smooth, densely creamy texture and flavours that can range from rich, savoury and brothy to long, sweet and almost pineapple-like.

Durrus Cheese: The paste is straw coloured with irregular tiny holes and a soft pliable texture. The flavour of the Durrus can range from mild, mellow and grassy when young to rich, strong and earthy when aged.

St James Cheese: The flavours are deep and complex, rich, savoury and sweet at the same time. This is a cheese you will not forget in a hurry.

Montgomery Cheddar: Its deep, rich, nutty flavours have won worldwide acclaim and will continue to do so under the pride and attention of the Montgomery Family.
