Fonseca Tawny Port 50cl in Wooden Gift Box
Fonseca Tawny Port 50cl in Wooden Gift Box.
Fonseca Tawny is drawn from wines selected for their smooth and mellow character. Tawny ports are blended to maintain quality and continuity of style. As it matures in small oak casks, Tawny Port gradually loses the deep red 'ruby' colour of youth and takes on the seductive amber hue known as 'tawny'. At the same time the wine becomes progressively smoother and mellower, its aromas gaining in richness and complexity. After years of ageing the wines are then blended together a few months before bottling for balance and harmony.
Tawny-red colour fading to brick on the rim. The seductive nose displays aromas of apricot and plum with mellow undertones of butterscotch and spice. On the palate, the rich jammy flavours are lifted on the finish by an attractive crisp acidity.
Tawny Port makes a delicious dessert wine, and combines particularly well with flavours of almonds, berry fruit or dark chocolate. Fonseca tawnies are bottled for immediate drinking.
