Fonseca Tawny Port 40 Year Tawny Port NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Fonseca 40 Year Old is a unique tawny port of great age with the characteristic olive ochre colour of the very oldest ports matured in cask. Decades of evaporation have concentrated this extraordinary wine almost to an essence. The nose has incredible power and density, unashamedly dominated by an all-pervading aroma of fine oak wood. Here, the typical aromas of cask ageing abound: spicy smells of clove, cinnamon, nutmeg and liquorice, warm roasted coffee smells, and an intense nuttiness reminiscent of walnut and hazelnut. It has an incredible, lengthy finish leaving a mouthful of lasting, mellow, spicy flavours and a persistent impression of fine seasoned oak.
