Fonseca Guimaraens with Funnel - 2004
Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Cão & Tinta Amarela
While somewhat earlier-maturing than Fonseca vintage ports, the fundamental difference between these and Guimaraens vintage ports lies in the latters’ upbringing. These are aged in Fonseca’s lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia and are only released for sale upon reaching maturity, which may be a decade or more after the vintage date. Beautifully structured and perfectly balanced, Guimaraens Vintage Ports show Fonseca’s superb marriage of power and breed.
