Fonseca Vintage (Ex Estate) 1985
From its first Vintage Port release in 1840, Fonseca has established itself as one of the preeminent producers in the region, renowned for remarkable quality and consistency. Their Vintage Ports are only released when a vintage produces outstanding wines with long term ageing potential and are composed of wines from the estates of Cruzeiro, Santo Antonio and Panascal. The 1985 still retains admirable youthful vim and vigour but is in a wonderful spot for drinking. Medium-bodied and svelte, it exhibits delicious notes of black cherry, fig, currants, dark chocolate, liquorice and baking spices.
