Fonseca Unfiltered LBV 2016 750ml
Tasting Notes: Deep, inky purple core with a bricking red rim. Rich, luscious and highly perfumed nose. Notes of blackberry, wild plum, logan berry, liquorice and a wonderful tension. Cloudberries give that added layer of soft, plump fruit, a mix of raspberry and redcurrant, with a hint of floral sweetness. On the palate, spice, brambles, assam tea with its traces of dark chocolate, cocoa and an alluring herbaceous hint. Good grip, concentration of dark woodland fruit, silky tannins and a fresh bright finish, with incredible length and generous mouth feel.
Food Pairing: Fonseca LBV is the perfect finish to any meal. Excellent with fully flavoured cheeses, especially blue cheeses such as Stilton or Roquefort. It is also delicious with desserts made with chocolate or berry fruits.
