Fonseca Port, 2001

Quinta do Panascal Vintage Port
Half Bottle 37.5cl.

Description and Reviews:
From the very good 2001 vintage the Fonseca Panascal vintage port offers a deep purple/black color. Lovely plump, typically Fonseca, voluptuous. Delicious pungent jammy fruit - compote of cherry and black plum. Rich and creamy. Powerful, aromatic, rich fresh fruit nose. Nice touch of cedar. Again wonderfully plump, luscious jammy fruit coming through on the mouth. Fleshy, rich, rounded. A hint of liquorice. Great, yet smooth, tannins. Good volume and balance. Nice long, succulent, lingering finish.

Located on the steep right bank of the Távora River, Panascal is one of the most highly reputed vineyards in the Douro Valley. In the words of a local saying, 'From Roncão and Panascal come the finest wines of Portugal'.
As well as Fonseca and Guimaraens Vintage Ports, blended from the wines of all three of its properties, the firm also offers rich, velvety single quinta Vintage Ports made entirely from the produce of Quinta do Panascal. These are a pure expression of the estate's terroir. Like Guimaraens Vintage Ports, they are made in years producing softer more approachable wines which do not need to be cellared for a long time before being enjoyed. The wines of Quinta do Panascal are rich, with voluptuous fruitiness, mouth filling density and a velvety texture.
