Fonseca 20yo Tawny 20%

20%, 75cl – Douro, Portugal

Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Cao, Tinta Amarela blend.

Fonseca cellars its aged tawnies in the Douro rather than in Vila Nova de Gaia; the considerable difference in heat, and humidity between these two areas lends Fonseca’s tawny Ports of age a very distinctive “baked” richness more reminiscent of butterscotch than of caramel.

Fonseca 20 Year Old Tawny is deep amber in color with russet highlights. Its superb bouquet is a complex marriage of ripe, plummy, mature fruit, warm spicy overtones of cinnamon and butterscotch and subtle oak nuances.

Perfect with figs, almond and caramel, creme brulee, wild strawberries, but aso enjoyable on its own at the end of a meal.
