Appealing fresh and intense blackcurrant and cherry aromas with hints of eucalyptus and spice. The palate displays wonderfully luscious, rich black fruit flavour supported by firm but supple tannins. A sumptuous and richly flavoured Port which should have pride of place on any dining table.
'The vintage Ports of Fonseca are perhaps the most consistently great of them all. Not only do they have a striking fleshiness and powerful richness when young, but they retain that youthfulness for decades.' James Suckling, in his authoritative book on Vintage Port. Press
"An extraordinary Vintage Port, the powerful, exotic, multidimensional 1970 boasts a dark plum color with light amber at the rim. An intoxicatingly fragrant perfume of incense, liquorice, caramel, black and red fruits, and notions of saddle leather soars from the glass of its unctuously textured, full-bodied, velvety offering. This magnificent Port is finally hitting full maturity, where it should rest for another 20+years." Robert Parker 97 points
Food is what really brings this wonderful Port wine to life. Whether it be rich blue veined cheeses such as Stilton and Roquefort or a sumptuous chocolate cheesecake.
