1948 Fonseca vintage port

Post by AHB » 00:32 Sun 14 Jun 2009

Opened as part of the Wokingham offline of 11 June 2009.

Ullaged to mid shoulder. Deep colour, more red than brown. Slightly farmyardy nose over a lovely clover honey. Very thick texture, lovely and lively in the mouth; full and flavoursome. A darned big port! The aftertaste is a little subdued, but very pleasant. 90/100.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
