On Tuesday 5th May 2015, the evening before The B.F.T., in the year of Fonseca’s 200th Bicentenary, we gathered in the Boot & Flogger and tasted some Fonsecas.

Fonseca Waterloo. Compared to the joys that had gone before, this was rough, light and functional.

I have been told that this is in commemorative packaging but that this is the normal blend of Bin 27.

Deep red, just off purple on the rim; 99% opaque at the centre. The youthful appearance carried through to the youthful nose that was full of blackcurrants. Soft on the palate with sweet blackcurrants backed up by gentle tannins. Pleasantly mouth filling but with a pronounced and slightly harsh acidity. Hotly acidic on the aftertaste, which quickly gives way to a pleasant and modestly chewy lingering blackcurrant. This has a nice silky texture and an enjoyable fragrant finish. 86/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
