Quinta do Panascal Vintage Porto

Fonseca

Quinta do Panascal Vintage Porto

Region: Portugal / Douro Valley Porto

The famous vineyard of Quinta do Panascal has been recognized for the quality of its fruit since the 1700s. A southwest-facing vineyard, it creates the big, opulent, fruit driven wines that make Fonseca so sought after. Single quinta vintage wines such as this are made in years when a general vintage is not declared, but the individual vineyard has produced exceptional fruit. The fruit for Fonseca’s single quinta vintage Portos is foot-trodden in granite lagares on the estate. The wine is aged for two years in vats before being bottled unfiltered.

tasting note

This wine shows fresh, rich blackberry and cassis aromas. It is velvety on the palate, with a well knit structure and a touch of cocoa before a long finish.

food pairing

This wine pairs well with blue cheese and desserts made with dark chocolate or berries. It should be decanted before serving due to sediment in the bottle.
