Read Decanter's tasting note for Fonseca Bicentenary Crusted: this blend of wines from several years is bottled like vintage port, without filtration.
Fonseca, Bicentenary Crusted, Port, Douro, Portugal
Bottled in 2008 and released for the bicentenary, this blend of wines from several years is bottled like a vintage Port, without filtration. Hence it will form a crust in the bottle. Deep, dark and intense, with more to give on the nose. The palate has super-ripe berry fruit, opulent and minty, and a powerful, ripe tannic finish.
