Vintage: 2008

Blackcurrant fruit with a nice spiciness and some prune richness. The palate is thick & spicy with rich blackcurrant and blackberry fruit and good tannins. A superb port.

Fonseca 20 Year Old Tawny Port

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Vintage: Non vintage
Type: Tawny Port
Country: Portugal – Douro

This is a great Tawny port.  Full of sweet nuts and dried fruits and a great viscosity that creates legs that seem to never end.  I find that this tawny is a bit softer and subtle compared to the Taylor’s 20, but it is still exceptional.  The only thing that makes me sad about this port is that it is hard to find in the UK!

Fonseca Porto Siroco

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Vintage: Non vintage
Type: White Port
Country: Portugal – Douro

Fonseca Siroco is a white port, best enjoyed chilled — sometimes with a slice of lemon and some tonic water. It is a dry port, certainly one of the driest that you will find. Light and refreshing with sweet citrus flavours. Great for hot summer days or as an aperitif.
