Fonseca is part of the first category of wine producers in the Vintage Port since the middle of the 19th century. The Fonseca Vintage Port wines are known for their exuberant fruity that develops great opulence and complexity with age. Their wines appeal to the enthusiast and connoisseur, perhaps more than the Vintage Ports of any other house because they are an inspired production and a deep knowledge of viticulture and terroir.
With an average ageing in a 10-year old hull, it is a coloured Port wine with an aromatic and fruity bouquet. It has a silky soft texture and subtle nuances of oak balanced by the freshness of its acidity and tannins.
