Fonseca Guimaraens was founded in 1822 by Manuel Pedro Guimaraens, a supporter of the liberal cause in the ‘War of the Two Brothers’, who was forced to flee Portugal hidden in an empty port cask. He settled in England, where the company remained until its return to Portugal in 1927. It’s a pioneer of organic wine production, currently overseen by descendant David Guimaraens.
Vineyard size 9 hectares. Organic since 1992.

Reserve Port ‘Terra Prima’, Fonseca (boxed)
This reserve port is a wonderfully rich, concentrated wine. It has great flavour and texture.
The opulent black fruit nose is followed through on the palate. There are layers of intense berry, plum and cherry fruit flavours.
These are supported by firm, but well integrated tannins. It’s deliciously textured: velvety, smooth, succulent, rounded and plump.
A lovely rich prolonged finish.
