The Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2017 includes Fonseca Guimaraens Vintage Port 2015.
Guimaraens Vintage Ports are made in certain years when a classic Fonseca Vintage is not declared and are generally more supple and approachable when young. An excellent choice for early drinking they nevertheless have the depth and stamina to mature in bottle.
Fonseca’s 200th anniversary year has produced an exceptional Guimaraens Vintage Port, expressive and approachable but with the stamina to improve over many years in the cellar.
As told by Fonseca’s wine maker, David Guimaraens: ‘The dry spring and summer produced low yields but the healthiest crop we have seen for many years. A balanced ripening season gave the 2015 wines their characteristically firm but well integrated tannins.’
