Fonseca Unfiltered LBV 2012 Port 750ml
Commercial description Variety: FORTIFIED/APERITIFS Style: PORT Region: DOURO VALLEY Vintage: 2012 Vineyard: The wines used to produce Fonseca LBV were drawn from a reserve of some of the best full bodied red ports produced at the 2011 harvest, from grapes grown on Fonsecas own vineyards and on other top properties in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior areas of the Douro. Vinification: These wines are aged in wood vats of 50 pipes (27,500 litres) capacity and then bottled after five years. A limited quantity of this outstanding blend was produced. Late Bottled Vintage is bottled when ready to drink. This port benefits from being decanted before serving, as it is not filtered when bottled.

Bouquet: fine, elegant bouquet. Rich black fruit and dark cherry aromas, with hints of eucalyptus and spice.
Palate: The palate shows luscious, rich blackberry fruit and a hint of blueberry. A wine with lovely textural quality; velvety smooth. The finish is rich in flavour and wonderfully intense and long
