For most vintage port lovers it came as a surprise to hear that Fonseca, along with Taylor and Croft, declared the 2009 port vintage.
It was not a question of quality, but more frequency. 2009 is the fourth year to be declared in the 2000's following 2000, 2003 and 2007. Four declarations in a decade has not occurred for generations.
2009 will be remembered as a year of low yields which produced wines of massive density and scale. The amount of fruit produced was down considerably creating wines with higher than usual tannin and opulent fruit characters.
We have 375ml, 750ml and 1500ml bottles in stock. For a limited time we offer them all at a 15% discount.
As a special bonus, if you buy a Case of 12 750ml bottles, we will throw in a bonus Magnum.
And of course, there is no rush to drink these Ports. They will happily cellar for several decades.

Wine Spectator: This is gorgeously vibrant and grapey, with good cut to the luscious dark fruit and cedar flavors that are flanked by zesty acidity and tannins. A touch brooding midpalate, with a minerally rush and a finish of slate and iron. Best from 2016 through 2036. 95 Points
