Food Match Fonseca Crusted is the perfect finish to any meal. Excellent with fully flavoured cheeses. It is also delicious with desserts made with chocolate or berry fruits.
Style Full bodied port
Deep, dark ruby colour. On the nose powerful aromatic aromas of dark berry fruit, raspberry leaf, redcurrants and a hint of mint. On the palate layers of complex flavours, redcurrant, raspberry, eucalyptus, balanced tannins and spice. Very elegant wine, with a long finish.
Country Of Origin: Portugal

Crusted is a traditional style and Fonseca is one of very few houses that continue to produce it. It is a blend of rich, full-bodied Ports bottled without fining or filtration. After bottling, it is kept for several years in the Fonseca cellars, slowly gaining in character and complexity, before being offered for sale. After some time a sediment or 'crust' will form in the bottle, a natural process occurring only in the finest Ports and a sign that they are able to improve in bottle.

This Crusted Port already displays attractive bottle maturity. Drinking superbly now, it is the perfect wine with which to celebrate a special occasion but those preferring to keep it in their cellars can expect it to continue improving in bottle.

Country Of Origin: Portugal
