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.
It's Ports have been made by five generations of the Guimaraens family since its foundation and it's 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 suggests dried strawberries and cherries, molasses, chocolate and a notable earthy undertone. It's slick with a beautiful supple texture and flavours of chocolate, caramel, baking spices and dried fruits. Still notably fresh it has a long cedary finish.
