Break the tradition and image of port drinking: a port for the summer months

 ” This is a unique style of port which truly lends itself to summer indulging – chill down to about 10ºC and serve at the end of a meal for a refreshing change. “

Fonseca 10 Year Old Tawny PortFonseca 10 Year Old Tawny Port

Founded in 1822 by the Guimaraens family, this remarkable house remained solely in its hands until 1948 when the family went into partnership with the Taylor port house.

The Guimaraens remain firmly in charge of all production and winemaking. In fact, such was  the family’s consistency during the 20th century all Fonseca ports were made by just four members of the family. Today, David Guimaraens is the winemaker and has been at the helm for over 20 years.

Fonseca 10 Year Old Tawny is russet in colour with brilliant crimson highlights and a fragrant, ripe-fruit bouquet. Its smooth, silky texture and subtle oak nuances are balanced by a fresh acidity and tannic “grip” that culminate in a long, elegant, plumy finish.

Try with summer fruits, meringue or the traditional cheese platter. Also one of the few dessert wines to work with chocolate.

Once opened, it can be kept in the fridge and enjoyed over the next 10-14 days.
