Day #[wpdts-day-of-year start=”post-created”] of the year.

Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage Porto (Unfiltered)

December 9th, is National Pastry day, but do we really need a special day to enjoy the flaky goodness! I always keep a puff-pastry handy in my freezer and there is certainly no shortage of quick and easy ideas to suit anyone’s taste be it sweet or savory from breakfast quiche, savory cheese sticks, palmiers to fresh berry tarts. To mark the day, I will be preparing fresh berry tartlets and for extra decadence will pair them with Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage Unfiltered port which compliments the berries to perfection – Cheers!

Tasting Notes

This wine shows fresh, black fruit and dark cherry aromas and flavors, with spice notes. This concentrated, structured wine has great volume and mouthfeel, with fine length on the finish.

Food Match

An excellent pairing with full-flavored cheeses, especially blue cheeses, and with dark chocolate or fresh berry desserts. This wine is unfiltered and should be decanted because of sediment in the bottle.
