Description

The purity of a fruity and balanced Vintage Port

According to tradition, the great Fonseca estate announced in April 2018 the release of its Porto Vintage 2016, another exceptional vintage

Marked by climatic conditions that were quite unusual for the Duriense region of northwest Portugal, 2016 saw a late harvest with lower than usual yields. Very heavy rainfall in the spring meant a late start to the ripening process, which then proceeded steadily up to the date of harvest. Cool nights during the harvest period allowed for excellent aromatic potential and balance in the grapes, which were then also preserved through a very gentle extraction.

When tasted, the Fonseca Vintage Port 2016 reveals a dense, intense purple color with a purple rim. Characterized by a brilliant purity and finesse, the bouquet opens with black fruit notes (cherry, blackberry jam) and delicious tropical fruit. Fragrances of mint and violet then appear when the wine is aerated. On the palate, the Vintage Port 2016 is bright and lively, enhanced by a beautiful acidity. The tannic structure lends plenty of body and volume to the palate. A wine of great length and persistence, the finish brings freshness and notes of blackberries.

A magnificent Vintage Port with an attractive minerality, perfectly balanced and representative of it vintage, displaying the fruity finesse that is the signature style of the Fonseca estate.
