A 20cl taster bottle of the Fonseca Bin No27.  This port was created over a century ago for family consumption, and only released commercially in 1972. Manoel Pedro Guimaraens who founded the firm in 1822, created this special port reserved for his family and kept in Bin no.27 of their private cellar. Five generations of Fonseca Guimaraens have maintained the quality and style of this fine reserve blend. It is produced primarily from wines from Fonseca's own quintas in the Cima Corgo and thus shows an exceptional quality and consistency from year to year. Blended from reserve wines selected for their superb fruit character and depth of colour, it's well-knit structure, rich, velvety full body and luscious blackcurrant and cherry flavours, also dominant in the bouquet, finish on an intense, lingering note.

Country Of Origin: Portugal
Since the emergence of vintage port as a great classic wine in the first half of the 19th century, Fonseca has been one of its most admired and consistent producers. The release of the legendary 1840, the first vintage port to be sold under the Fonseca name, marked the start of a steady stream of magnificent vintages which continue to this day. Over the years, Fonseca's determination to preserve and refine its distinctive house style has drawn it ever closer to the vineyard. The last three decades of the 20th century saw it invest in vineyard ownership and take a leading role in vineyard renovation in the Douro Valley. Fonseca's three estates, Panascal, Cruzeiro and Santo Antonio, with their distinctive terroirs, have a key role in defining the unmistakeable character of the firm's wines. Fonseca also became a pioneer of organic and sustainable viticulture, helping to conserve the unique ecosystem and landscape of the valley for future generations.
