Estate Notes

Fonseca’s 1992 Vintage Port was purchased in its original wooden case and comes from a truly outstanding Port vintage – producing wines of great concentration and tannic structure – a truly a great year. Fonseca's 1992 is hugely structured with layer upon layer of full-bodied unctuous flavours. A great vintage Port style for the long-haul.

Fonseca's house style is one of richness and warmth, and lush fruit intensity. While Fonseca may lack the power of Taylor's and Warre's port houses, and the opulence of Graham's, it is without doubt the most voluptuous, exotic and complex of port styles.

Reviews

"The 1992 is a majestic young port that should ultimately rival, perhaps even surpass this house's most recent great efforts (1985, 1977, 1970, 1963). This colossal vintage port reveals a nearly opaque black/purple color, and an explosive nose of jammy black fruits, licorice, chocolate, and spices. Extremely full-bodied and unctuously-textured, this multi-layered, enormously-endowed port reveals a finish that lasts for over a minute. It is a magnificent port that will age well for 30-40 years."
