Fonseca 10 Year Old Tawny 750ml
Fonseca 10 Year Old is made from selected red Ports grown in the best vineyards of the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. The wine ages in small oak casks, generally holding about 630 litres, where there is a relatively small volume of wine compared to the surface area of the vessel, so contact with the wood is proportionately greater. As it matures in cask, Tawny Port gradually loses the deep red 'ruby' color of youth and takes on the seductive amber hue known as 'tawny'.
Tasting Notes: Fonseca 10 Year Old Tawny is russet in color with brilliant crimson highlights and a fragrant, ripe-fruit bouquet. Its smooth, silky texture and subtle oak nuances are balanced by a fresh acidity and tannic “grip” that culminate in a long, elegant, plumy finish.
Food Pairing: Fonseca 10 Year Old makes a delicious dessert wine, and combines particularly well with flavors of almonds, berry fruit or dark chocolate. It can also be enjoyed as an accompaniment for rich, blue veined cheeses or with a plate of walnuts or roasted almonds.
