Estate Notes

Fonseca Unfiltered LBV Vintage Port 2008 won Gold at Decanter's World Wine Awards.

The wines used to produce Fonseca LBV were drawn from a reserve of some of the best full bodied red ports produced at the 2008 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.The wines were aged in wooden vats of 50 pipes (27,500 litres) and bottled after five years.

Fonseca's LBV will benefit from being decanted before serving, as it is not filtered.


“Focused and pure-tasting, with concentrated flavors of red plum, crushed raspberry and violet that are broad, rich and plush. Well-sculpted, offering a finish that bursts with dark chocolate and spice notes.” Wine Spectator
