Fonseca Crusted Port In Wooden Gift Box

Crusted is a traditional style and Fonseca is one of very few houses that continue to produce it. It is a blend of rich, full-bodied Ports bottled without fining or filtration.

  • Powerful aromatic bouquet
  • Dark berry fruits on the nose and mouth
  • Great layers of complexity and flavour
  • Plump raisin, spice, eucalyptus notes as well as the berry fruit flavours
  • An elegant and finely balanced wine
  • Perfect finish to any meal
  • It benefits from being decanted
  • Serve in a generously proportioned wine glass so that its rich fruity nose can be enjoyed to the full
  • Excellent with fully flavoured cheeses
  • It is also delicious with desserts made with chocolate or berry fruits

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.

This traditional Fonseca crusted port already displays attractive bottle maturity. Drinking superbly now, it is the perfect wine with which to celebrate a special occasion but those preferring to keep it in their cellars can expect it to continue improving in bottle.
