Fonseca Tawny Port 20 year old
Fonseca 20 Year Old Tawny is deep amber in color with russet highlights. Its superb bouquet is a complex marriage of ripe, plummy, mature fruit, warm spicy overtones of cinnamon and butterscotch and subtle oak nuances. It combines well with flavours of figs, almonds and caramel. It is an excellent complement for a crème brulée or a plate of wild strawberries. It may also be appreciated on its own, at the end of the meal, with walnuts or dried fruit.
A gorgeous Port at that right stage where there is still freshness and hints of orange and dried fruits, while the wood aging is concentrating the wine into its essence. It is rich, full, yet at the same time has a great tang of spirit and acidity.
A touch darker in profile than its peers, with toasted black sesame, caramel, walnut and hazelnut cream notes backed by singed orange peel and ginseng accents. Stays focused thanks to a light bitter almond thread on the finish, giving this a slightly drier feel. Drink now. 2,050 cases made, 1,600 cases imported.
