Description

Fonseca Bin 27

Fonseca Bin 27 has sweet and macerated fruit on the nose, initially with a little confectionery and violets, nevertheless very traditional with plenty of fruit, a moderate substance and a gently creamy mid palate.

Fonseca Bin 27 has plenty of peppery grip, good acidity and a very firm structure, all in all though it has a nice style, with good substance to it, plenty of dark, tobacco-laced fruits and an attractive roasted-herb edge

Fonseca traces its origins to 1815. Fonseca Guimaraens was then founded in 1822 when Manuel Pedro Guimaraens acquired the majority share of the Fonseca & Monteiro company holdings. http://www.fonseca.pt/en/vineyards/

Not long after this purchase, Guimaraens, a supporter of the liberal cause in the ‘War of the Two Brothers’ was forced to flee Portugal hidden in an empty port wine cask.

He settled in England, where his company remained based until 1927, when the headquarters of the firm returned to Portugal.

Throughout the generations, the Fonseca secret has been passed on to the next family member, who imparts richness and structure of both dimension and finesse across the range.

The current custodian is David Guimaraens, who with his flawless winemaking and viticultural track record expresses the very best of each vintage.

The two Pinhão Valley estates of Quinta do Cruzeiro and Quinta de Santo António, have supplied Fonseca for over a hundred years.

Quinta do Panascal in the Távora Valley has a more recent association with Fonseca, but its wines perfectly complement those of the two Pinhão Valley properties as well as producing an exceptional single-quinta Vintage Port made exclusively from grapes grown on the estate.

The unique terroir of each quinta contributes its own distinctive character to the Fonseca Vintage Port blend.  Cruzeiro provides the dense core of black fruit and tannin.

This is enveloped in the rich succulent jammy flavours and velvety texture of the wines of Panascal and overlaid by the exotic heady scents of Santo António.

The fusion of the wines of these three diverse properties explains the multi-layered and multi-dimensional quality of Fonseca Vintage Ports and their ability to continue releasing surges of opulent complex aroma over decades of ageing in bottle.

Intense, pungent, very fruity nose, with some chocolate and plenty of richness and obvious concentration, and notes of exotic spice and Seville orange. Fabulous palate, with all sorts of nuances of tea, caramel, intense glace fruit sweetness and the mid-palate nougat and softly nutty richness.

Fonseca Terra Prima

Silky-smooth aromas of crushed red berry fruits and chocolate with little herbal nuances. On the palate that herbal quality is still there but some pure, velvety, cherry and plum fruit fills in nicely, the subtle sweetness developing but staying balanced by a certain acidity and a fairly nimble, lighter-bodied character. A spicy finish too in a style that is not heavy and very sippable. 89/100 Tom Cannavan, www.wine-pages.com

This has a nut-brown colour and oxidised, nutty nose, with a hint of chocolate and more raisiny fruit. On the palate it has an intensity and sweetness that makes and immediate mark, with quite a broad mid-palate and a touch of alcoholic heat, with some caramel and fruity flavours, with a fine acid structure that is beautifully fresh and crisp in the finish.

Henriques & Henriques Madeira 10 yo Sercial

Very intensely aromatic, with almost tropical fruit notes appearing fleetingly, then nuts and citrus fruits. On the palate there is a little note of marzipan, and a rich, mouth-filling texture that makes this initially quite full and lush, with a depth of dry, acid-streaked toffee, spice and marmalade. Lovely structure and length here, with fine definition and finesse.
