Description

A wine of exceptional quality made with the best grapes of a single harvest. A Vintage declaration occurs when producers believe that all conditions are gathered to release the highest standard of quality. On average, fully declared 2 to 3 times per decade, the wine must be bottled between the 2nd and 3rd year after the harvest. A wine built to age for decades reaching full maturity after 20 to 40 years of bottle aging.

Tasting Notes

Regarded as the best Fonseca since the awesome 1977, this 1992 release is a big and voluptuous Vintage Port with alluring aromas of cassis, violets, chocolate, fresh blackberries, liquorice, resin, plums and spices. This majestic and exceptionally full-bodied Vintage Port displays great concentration and grip, with bold, round integrated tannins. Delivering a highly complex, multi-layered and textural experience on the palate, this Port has a beautiful and intense finish.
