Organic, fleshy, luscious.
Established in 1815, Fonseca belongs in the first rank of Vintage Port houses and is regarded as one of the most stylistically consistent of the classic Vintage Port houses.
Its Ports have been made by five generations of the Guimaraens family since its foundation and the wines are made from the estates of Panascal, Cruzeiro and Santo Antonio.
In 2006 it became the first house to offer a Port made entirely from organically produced grapes.
The Terra Prima is a concentrated Port offering grapey aromas layered with violets, prune, blueberry, baking spice and chocolate. The palate is just as intense with its sweet grapey flavours wrapped in luscious purple fruit, spice and botanical. Slick and concentrated fresh ad lengthy it trails fine white pepper across the finish.
