1983 Fonseca

Post by PhilW » 20:13 Mon 25 Jun 2018

Decanted on Saturday; only a small amount drunk on Sat evening at D+3hr: lovely raisins and complex fruit initially, leading to a simpler very sweet Graham-like finish.

Didn't get the chance for any on Sun evening, so next drunk at D+48hr; sadly has not lasted well. Now somewhat less full or well balanced, still pleasant but with a simpler finish with a slightly sour note on the end. Definitely a wine to drink on the evening of decant, or to finish the following day, no longer.
