Crusted is a rare, traditional style of Port wine and Fonseca is one of the few firms continuing to produce it. A beautiful wine displaying fine quality of fruit, which marks the Fonseca house style. Full-bodied and fruity, dark purple-black in colour. Elegant and modest, yet youthful, with impressive depth. The nose opens with ripe bramble fruit and touches of apricot and prune, gradually revealing notes of wood and delicate violet. The palate is full-bodied due to strong tannins giving a firm grip. The powerful dark berries linger on the palate providing a persistent finish. Immensely pleasurable now but with potential for further ageing in bottle.
