2012 Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage Port

2012 Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage Port image

The wines used to produce Fonseca LBV were drawn from a reserve of some of the best full bodied red ports produced at the 2012 harvest, from grapes grown on Fonseca's own vineyards and on other top properties in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior areas of the Douro. These wines are aged in large wooden vats of 27,500 litre capacity and then bottled after five years. A limited quantity of this outstanding blend was produced. Late Bottled Vintage is bottled when ready to drink. This port benefits from being decanted before serving, as it is not filtered when bottled.



TASTING NOTES



Wonderfully exuberant, pungent, full, aromatic nose. Luscious, ripe, black cherry and plum fruit with notes of cedar and spice. The wine is wonderfully rich, rounded, concentrated, with layers juicy berry flavours and attractive notes of cedar. An elegant wine with good complexity. Lovely, intense finish full of flavor.
