Very closed in comparison with the 1995 Guimaraens - stately and dense. Hints of spice, fruit-cake, violets and blossom. Pure, focused, very ripe and youthful - beautiful red fruit preserve flavours, and impressive length. Still extremely young and hasn't even begun to hint at much secondary character on the palate yet. (RH)

About This Producer


Fonseca's wines have been created by family winemakers throughout the years, using traditional stone lagares to produce their top quality vintage port. Today's winemaking team is looking to employ new technologies such as piston paddle vats, known as "port-toes," to improve the quality of its non-vintage port wines. David Guimaraens, sixth generation Guimaraens, is the current winemaker and strives to maintain the house's "quest for quality, complexity and structure" as well as its prominent position in the world market.
