New Release

The wine:

Fonseca Crusted Port

The agent:

(Tel: 020 7840 3600, website www.mentzendorff.co.uk or email info@mentzendorff.co.uk)

The details:

Crusted is a rare, traditional style of port and Fonseca is one of the few firms that produce it. Fonseca Crusted is a blend of full-bodied wines bottled with no filtration and then cellared for three years before being released for sale.

As the name indicates, it will form a ‘crust’ or sediment in the bottle and should be decanted before being served. The formation of this ‘crust’ is a natural process that occurs in the finest full-bodied ports. It is an indication that the wine will continue to improve in bottle and develop its aroma and character with age.

Fonseca Crusted is selected from the finest Cima Corgo ports and the supply is limited.

    The wine: Fuddling Cup

    The details: The Fuddling Cup vineyard was planted with premium Cabernet Sauvignon in the Geographic region of Western Australia within sight of the Indian Ocean in 2000. Our goal of boutique production of around 1000 cases of very high quality Cabernet Sauvignon was achieved with immediate critical acclaim including Decanter and Winestate magazine recommendations. First class viticulture, wine making and maturation in French oak result in Cabernets showing lifted cassis, chocolate, plums. Good depth and structure, firm finish, and long length and sweet oak characters. Fuddling Cup means consistent quality and value to your customers as we now seek representation in the UK.
