Estate Notes

Fonseca Guimaraens Vintage Port 1998 is a lovely, medium-bodied, early drinking Port.

Fonseca's house style is one of richness and warmth and it is the most voluptuous, exotic and complex of port styles.

Fonseca-Guimaraens is a blend of Quintas (vineyards) that classic declared Fonseca’s yield from, and allows this famous Port house to be very selective in choosing the best barrels to blend into the finest port. In short, a Fonseca-Guimaraens is a true Fonseca in a year not deemed a classic vintage.

Reviews

"A pretty, early-drinking Vintage Port. Very grapey, with hints of plum skin. Medium-bodied, with medium tannins and a light finish." Wine Spectator
