Suprise Your Love With Fonseca BIN 27
Description: Vineyards & Winemaking BIN No. 27 is produced primarily from grapes from Fonseca’s own quintas in the Cima Corgo—exceptional fruit that results in a wine of high quality and consistency from year to year. Fonseca is recognized across the Douro as a leader of viticulture practices for Porto. Where other groups still use the old pump-over maceration, Fonseca, Croft and Taylor Fladgate are unique in using the advanced piston fermentation vats called “Port Toes” for all non-vintage Portos. Blended from reserve wines selected for their intense depth of color and fruit character, BIN No. 27 is aged for four years in neutral wood vats before bottling. Tasting Note This wine shows fresh, rich blackberry and cassis aromas. On the palate, it has a well knit structure, with velvety, luscious black fruit and chocolate flavors before a long, intense finish.
