Fonseca Tawny Port In Wooden Gift Box 50cl
Fonseca Tawny Port 50cl In Wooden Gift Box
Fonseca tawny wines are smooth and mellow in character. This tawny port is blended to maintain quality and continuity of style. As it matures in small oak casks, it gradually loses the deep red 'ruby' colour of youth and takes on the seductive amber hue known as 'tawny'.
At the same time the wine becomes progressively smoother and mellower, its aromas gaining in richness and complexity. Blending takes place after years of ageing, then together a few months before bottling for balance and harmony.
- Tawny-red colour fading to brick on the rim
- The seductive nose displays aromas of apricot and plum with mellow undertones of butterscotch and spice
- On the palate there are rich jammy flavours
- The finish has an attractive crisp acidity
Tawny port makes a delicious dessert wine, and combines particularly well with flavours of almonds, berry fruit or dark chocolate. Enjoy as an accompaniment for rich, blue veined cheeses.
It is excellent at the end of the meal, as a crowning moment of an enjoyable evening, served on its own or with a plate of walnuts or roasted almonds.
Serve Fonseca tawny port slightly chilled, particularly in warm weather.
