Fonseca hardly ever releases port from this quinta as a single quinta VP.
The colour is rather pale, brownish red, clearly aged. Light fruit on the nose, caramel and raisins. Nose is somewhat alcoholic. Light bodied on the palate with sweet strawberries and other light red fruit. A bit smoky and some tobacco. Initially a bit hot, but that blows off with air. A figgy, sweet finish with caramel and some bitterness. All in all a nice and fruity, if rather simple port, that has hardly any noticeably tannins left. Peak drinking. 86 points.
