Fonseca Terra Prima Reserve Port

Details

Fonseca's first experience with organic viticulture goes back to 1992 when Bruce

Guimaraens decided to convert part of Quinta do Panascal to organic production. This vineyard was the first organic vineyard in the Douro Valley and continues today to be a critical reference to all their practices in viticulture. The experience and comfort that they have obtained from the past thirteen years of organic viticulture has led to dramatic changes to the way we manage all of their other vineyards and the technical advice that they pass on to their grape suppliers.

They have introduced new viticultural practices to their vineyards, such as grass cover between the vine rows, that originate from the experience obtained in their organic vineyard. They have also produced an organic port through one of their professional farmers, Quinta do Lodeiro, with whom they have had a very long and close working relationship. Since 2002, their viticultural team has played an even more active role in the management of their vineyard.

The entire property is run organically and they produce the port at Fonseca's winery under the certification of Socert, Portugal. The final step into producing an organic port came three years ago with the production of an organic fortifying spirit. To achieve this, they linked up with a specialist distiller with the know-how to produce brandy spirit, capable of being approved by the Port Wine Institute. The extremely high quality of grapes and brandy used have produced this tremendously fruity and attractive young port, full of fresh aromatic character.

TASTING NOTE:

A wonderfully rich, concentrated wine with great flavour and texture. The opulent black fruit nose is followed through on the palate: layers of intense berry, plum and cherry fruit flavours are supported by firm, but well integrated tannins. Deliciously textured; velvety, smooth. Succulent, rounded, plump. A lovely rich prolonged finish. Best served on its own or at the end of a meal with cheese. Bottled for immediate drinking and no need to decant.
