Product Description

Fonseca is one of the few firms that continue to produce Crusted Port. It is a rare, traditional style of Port wine. Crusted is a blend of full bodied wines which spend four years ageing in large wooden vats, the wines are then bottled with no filtration and then cellared for three years before being released for sale.

As the name indicates, it will form a ‘crust’ or sediment in the bottle and should be decanted before being served. The formation of the crust is a natural process that occurs in the finest full bodied ports. It is an indication that the wine will continue to improve in bottle and develop its aroma and character with age.

Powerful aromatic bouquet. Dark berry fruits on the nose and mouth.
Great layers of complexity and flavour. Plump raisin, spice, eucalyptus notes as well as the berry fruit flavours.

Food Match  The perfect finish to any meal.  Decant and serve in a generously proportioned wine glass so that its rich fruity nose can be enjoyed to the full.
Excellent with fully flavoured cheeses. It is also delicious with desserts made with chocolate or berry fruits.
