Fonseca Guimeraens Port 1998
By Fonseca Port
"A pretty, early drinking Vintage Port. Very grapey, with hints of plum skin. Medium bodied, with medium tannins and a light finish." James Suckling : The Wine Spectator
Tasting Notes: Dark purple, almost opaque with lovely, rich, full blackberry aromas and attractive floral and liquorice scents. This is a big, very rich and well rounded wine bursting with blackberry fruit. Medium to full bodied with a smooth, silky finish.
How to Serve : Decant and serve alone to savour the rich and complex flavours of the wine in a generously proportioned glass. Alternatively walnuts and blue cheeses would make an excellent match to this 98 vintage.
Grape : Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Cão, Tinta Amarela
