Heiner Lobenberg über:
Vintage Port (fruchtsüß) 2017


Lobenberg: Sehr charmant mit floralen und exotischen Aromen, süß, samtig und sehr üppig. 98-100


Wine Enthusiast über: Vintage Port (fruchtsüß)

-- Wine Enthusiast: The wine's fine perfumed black plum fruits give a wonderful jammy character while bringing out a fresh edge. These are balanced by the dry core of this beautiful wine with its rich, generous tannins. It will all come together from 2030 in a very fine, integrated wine. 98/100


Wine Spectator über: Vintage Port (fruchtsüß)

-- Wine Spectator: Dark and dense, with fig bread, baker's chocolate and tar notes leading off before the core flavors of plum, black currant and blackberry paste finally start to emerge. The wild, spirited finish shows cast iron, licorice snap and roasted alder elements, delivering a decidedly chewy feel. A big, old-school, throwback Port that will age at a glacial pace. Best from 2035 through 2060. 1,000 cases imported. 97/100


Parker über: Vintage Port (fruchtsüß)

-- Parker: The 2017 Vintage Port, not quite bottled when seen but the final blend, is a field blend (with typical grapes like Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca) aged for approximately 20 months in used French oak. It comes in with 98 grams of residual sugar, a little drier on paper than its Taylor sibling this year. Sappy and sensational in flavor and fruit, this seemingly has moderate tannins around the edges on first taste, velvety texture and a long finish. Despite the first impression of moderation, there is plenty of power here. As it got some aeration, it showed nothing but power and closed down fairly hard. The combination of great fruit and fine structure makes this a potentially great Fonseca, but right now it is obviously immature and not showing everything it has. I'd recommend some patience here. 96-98/100

Mein Winzer


Das Haus Fonseca gehört zu den ersten Adressen für Portweine und wird seit 1822 von der Familie Guimaraens geführt. Die Sorgfalt im Umgang mit den Weinen und die behutsame Lagerung sind die Faktoren, die die außergewöhnliche Güte der Fonseca Ports garantieren.
