Fonseca 20 Year Aged Tawny

Today, October 29th, is National Internet Day! Arguably the greatest innovation of the last century, the web has connected us in ways previously deemed impossible. It’s transformed the global economic landscape and proliferated the spread of information to billions of people. Why not celebrate today by opening a wine that’s been aged for about as long as the life of the modern Internet – the Fonseca 20 Year Aged Tawny. Amber in hue and sweet-tasting, you can tell immediately that this is a Port that’s taken its time to mature. Pour one out for dial-up and AIM before you indulge, though.

Fonseca 20 Year Aged Tawny

Tasting Notes

This is a mature wine of deep amber color with russet highlights. The bouquet’s complex marriage of ripe, plummy fruit, warm cinnamon and butterscotch notes and subtle oak nuances are confirmed on the palate, which is sweet and voluminous, with a velvety texture carrying into a long, elegant finish.

Food Match

Pairs well with figs, almonds, pecan pie, caramel and crème brûlée. It can be served at the end of the meal on its own, with walnuts or dried fruit, and can be slightly chilled in the summer. Made to be enjoyed immediately.
