Fonseca Port, 2013
Guimaraens (MAGNUM 150cl)
Description and Reviews:
In its Bicentenary year Fonseca will release a Guimaraens Vintage Port.
Commenting on the release, Fonseca's Managing Director, Adrian Bridge, noted: "Fonseca started trading on 8th April, 1815. Given Fonseca's undisputed position as a 'first growth' Vintage Port producer, I am delighted that we will be marking this historic event and celebrating the Bicentenary of the house with the release of a textbook Guimaraens 2013 Vintage Port." He added: "Guimaraens Vintage Ports have been made for over a century, drawing on the best produce of Fonseca's own estates in years that produce more supple and early maturing wines. The 2013 is a worthy successor to this tradition".
David Guimaraens, Fonseca's Wine Maker, added: "2013 may be described as a 'watershed' harvest, with exceptionally rich, powerful wines being produced prior to the rains of late September and lighter wines thereafter. The Ports made on the Fonseca estates in the first week of the vintage were outstanding, allowing us to produce a very fine Guimaraens 2013 vintage blend, full bodied and packed with dense berry fruit flavour."
Guimaraens Vintage Ports are made in certain years when a classic Fonseca Vintage is not declared. They are blended from the best produce of the firm's Pinhão Valley estates, Cruzeiro and Santo António, and Fonseca's flagship property, Quinta do Panascal, on the right bank of the Távora. Approachable when young, they are an excellent choice for early drinking but have the depth and stamina to mature in bottle.
