Fonseca 70 Years of Port Gift


Fonseca 40, 20 and 10 Year Tawny Port in a Triple Wooden Gift Box
Description: Fonseca 40 Year Old Tawny (75cl):
Tawny Ports of 40 years of age, the oldest designation allowed, are true rarities.

This sublime port of great age and rarity has been aged in casks for an average age of 40 years. The port shows the old olive-gold hue of its many years in cask. Decades of evaporation have concentrated the wine to an exceptional density. Impressions of clove, nutmeg and an intense nuttiness converge both on the bouquet and palate. The wine's lush, almost viscous texture culminates in a finish of incredible length.
