Fonseca Porto Tawny

Fonseca Porto Tawny 750ml   
Sku: 13849

Fonseca’s Fine Tawny Porto is made from fruit grown in Fonseca’s estate vineyards supplemented by fruit sourced in the traditional way from area growers. In the winery, the newly developed, robotic “Port Toes” technology for treading allows the winery to maximize the quality of the fruit by mimicking the gentle action of human feet during traditional foot treading. Fermentation is halted by the addition of grape spirits before all the residual sugar has been fermented, creating a sweet, fortified wine. Each year, a portion of this ruby wine is set aside according to its aging potential to be added to Fonseca’s stocks for blending. The Fine Tawny Porto is a blend of wines, selected from these stocks, that have been aged for an average of three years.

Tasting notes
Integrated flavors of sweet, ripe red berry fruit and distinct impressions of toasty almonds converge in this crisp, direct young port, carrying into silky, supple tannins and a fresh, mellow finish.

Food pairing
Excellent with dried fruit and nuts. Made to be enjoyed immediately, without further aging.
