Wine of the Week NZ
Fonseca Vintage Port 2016, Douro Valley, Portugal, NZD $199.99
Very dense and quite lush port with blackcurrant, red-fleshed plum, violets and dried fruit flavours. Clearly a long-lived wine but surprisingly and seductively accessible now. A delicious and impressive wine with wonderful purity. (Cork)
