1994 Fonseca Vintage Port
We are absolutely delighted to have secured another parcel of the fabulous 100 point 1994 Fonseca - again imported straight from the cellars in Oporto.
'Hold on to your hat. This is the best Fonseca since 1977, and it's probably even better than that classic vintage--more like the breathtaking 1948. Mind-blowing'
The 1994 is the perfect Port drinker's vintage; mature yet still full of life… you can happily drink them this Christmas, or a thirty years from now. The wine has been stored in perfect conditions since 1994 - the provenance is therefore impeccable and the bottles are in immaculate condition.
I rank the 1994 Fonseca in the top three Ports I have ever tasted - alongside 1948 Taylor's and 1963 Dow's. It really is a wine that needs to be tasted to be believed.
Don't miss this opportunity to secure some for your collection!
1994 Fonseca Vintage Port @ £580 per 6
Ex Cellars Oporto 2021
Hold on to your hat. This is the best Fonseca since 1977, and it's probably even better than that classic vintage--more like the breathtaking 1948. Mind-blowing, with masses of color, aroma and fruit flavor. Smells like fermenting berries, boasting loads of crushed grape, violet and berry character. Big, full-bodied and very sweet, with tons of tannins and a sweet finish. Tannic and huge, it's a long-term, great Port. Best after 2012. 8,000 cases made.
