Description

Crusted is a rare, traditional style of port and Fonseca is one of the few firms that produce it. Fonseca Crusted is a blend of full-bodied wines bottled with no filtration and then cellared for three years before being released for sale. As the name indicates, it will form a crust or sediment in the bottle and should be decanted before being served. The formation of this crust is a natural process that occurs in the finest full-bodied ports. It is an indication that the wine will continue to improve in bottle and develop its aroma and character with age. Fonseca Crusted is selected from the finest ports from the top quality Cima Corgo area of the Douro Valley and the supply is limited. Powerful aromatic bouquet. Dark berry fruits on the nose and mouth. Great layers of complexity and flavour. Plump raisin, spice, eucalyptus notes as well as the berry fruit flavours. An elegant and finely balanced wine. If you have a decanter, use it for crusted port. If you do not, try double decanting, which achieves the same effect: pour the port in to a suitable neutral receptacle, such as a jug. Take special care towards the end of the bottle – use natural light or a candle to see when the sediment starts to be poured. Without undue wastage, stop pouring at this point. Rinse then drain the original bottle, then pour the decanted port back in to serve. The process also opens up the full depth of tastes and aromas to be enjoyed. Blend of Grapes Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Cao & Tinta Amarela
