Fonseca 1985 Vintage Port (6x75cl)

Recently tasted in London and there is no doubt that this Port is a classic, still showing great character as it heads towards it's 37th birthday...

The backbone of Fonseca Vintage ports are the wines drawn primarily from Fonseca’s three quintas: Quinta de Santo António, Quinta do Cruzeiro, and Quinta do Panascal.  The finest grapes from these quintas produce its classic Vintage ports and the grapes are still trodden by foot in the stone ‘lagares’!

The Fonseca 1985 is a deep inky ruby with a broad red rim. Generous and seductive nose redolent of blackcurrant , cherry and ground coffee. The full round palate is supported by thick well integrated tannins and delivers an abundance of luscious chocolate and blackcurrant flavour which lingers into the long velvety finish. A wine poised between youth and maturity.


“A troublesome vintage for many shippers, but Fonseca 1985 never fails to impress: tight-knit, dense and minty with a core of concentration and pure berry fruit. Succulent, wonderfully fresh and vibrant at 30 years old. Peacock’s tail of a finish. A real ‘wow’ of a wine that promises to last a lifetime. 96 points”
