Fonseca Tawny Port with gift box 50cl, 20%

Fonseca reserves a portion of exceptionally concentrated, powerful, quality red ports in the January after each vintage, mostly from the firm’s own quintas based on their ageing potential.

Tawny ports lighten in colour as they mature, due to the fact that they deposit their sediment in the barrel rather than the bottle. Racking aids in the oxidation process, which causes the fruit notes of the wine to fade with time and nutty characteristics to emerge.

On the rim, a tawny-red hue fades to a deep brick colour. Apricot and cherry notes mingle with gentle butterscotch and spicy undertones on the  nose. An appealing sharp acidity lifts the thick jammy flavours on the palate.

Perfect Serve Nailed!

Fonseca Tawny Port is a scrumptious dessert wine that pairs beautifully with almonds, berry fruit, and dark chocolate. It’s also a good match with blue veined cheeses with a strong flavour.
