Fonseca, Vintage Port

Description

Levels 2 BN, rest into neck or better, good appearance, several corks slightly raised, embossed capsules.

PLEASE ALLOW UP TO 4 WEEKS FOR DELIVERY OF THIS LOT.

Mid-deep tawny. A fair amount of truffle development, with dried herb complexity and dried black fruit beneath. On the palate, still plenty of fruit depth and energy, showing a more youthful side. Good length too. Hard to judge this, as the nose is showing significant development, while the palate is giving a lot more. Tim Jackson MW (September 2020) JancisRobinson.com

 

This lot forms part of a private collection acquired over several decades by a connoisseur with a passion for Australian wines and Vintage Port. The majority were purchased upon first release, both in the UK and Australia, and all lots were acquired through carefully selected sources and kept in temperature-controlled professional storage until removal especially for this sale. Bid for Wine inspected and photographed every bottle, which were found with their tissue-wrapping previously untouched.
