Fonseca Crusted – bottled in 2015

Impenetrable purple-black colour with a narrow magenta rim. Elegant and understated, still youthful and tight, with impressive depth and background. The nose opens with a surge of pure brambly woodland fruit and hints of apricot and prune. Although still relatively closed and austere, it gradually opens up to reveal discreet notes of leather and exotic wood and delicate scents of violet. A beautifully harmonious wine, displaying all the fine quality of fruit which marks the Fonseca house style.
