POR002

£29.50

Quick Overview

Powerful nose crammed with ripe cherry and raspberry aromas, with hints of cedar and spice. Firm and round on the palate with chewy tannins and luscious jammy blackcurrant flavour. This superb wine exhibits the aromatic opulence and voluptuous ripe black fruit character that are the hallmarks of the Guimaraens vintage style.

Details

While somewhat earlier-maturing than Fonseca vintage ports, the fundamental difference between these and Guimaraens vintage ports lies in the latters’ upbringing. These are aged in Fonseca’s lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia and are only released for sale upon reaching maturity, which may be a decade or more after the vintage date. There is a considerably smaller blend of Guimaraens vintage produced than of Fonseca vintage port, and these non-classic wines offer exceptional value.

TASTING NOTE:

Powerful nose crammed with ripe cherry and raspberry aromas, with hints of cedar and spice. Firm and round on the palate with chewy tannins and luscious jammy blackcurrant flavour. This superb wine exhibits the aromatic opulence and voluptuous ripe black fruit character that are the hallmarks of the Guimaraens vintage style.

HOW TO SERVE:

If you have a decanter, use it for Guimaraens. If you do not, try "double decanting", which achieves the same effect: pour the port in to a suitable neutral receptacle, such as a jug. Take especial care towards the end of the bottle- use natural light or a candle to see when the sediment starts to be poured. Without undue wastage, stop pouring at this point. Rinse then drain the original bottle, then pour the decanted port back in to serve. The process also opens up the full depth of tastes and aromas to be enjoyed.
