Fonseca Port, 1985

Vintage Port 2x75cl bottles- Includes double wooden Fonseca gift box as illustrated

Description and Reviews:
Drinking wonderfully now, the 1985 Fonseca Vintage port is one of the stars of the '80's. A great gift comprising of two bottles for a special family and friends gathering. It has a lovely nose of maturing port, finely styled and just screaming quality. The palate carries a svelte texture, with a creamy, flattering character. There is purity, balance, a clean, bright quality and despite this lots of appealing grip. This has great impact, and yet is so welcoming and alluring. Excellent wine, and a great example of the vintage.

***Jamie Goode-93 Points (Outstanding***
***Parker rating 90/100 (outstanding)***
Dense ruby/purple with the Oriental spice-box aroma, the 1985 is an expansive, sweet, broadly flavored wine with outstanding depth, concentration, and balance. It finishes with a solid lashing of alcohol and tannin. Parker, Buying Guide 1989

Michael Broadbent MW, The Great Vintage Wine Book II – 5 Stars
“Full bodied. Powerful. Still opaque; soft, sweet fleshy. Well endowed with fruit, alcohol and tannin for longevity. My style of wine. Magnificent. Drink 1998-2030. Potentially outstanding.”
