Top scores galore for this amazingly rich, complex and powerful 2017 from Fonseca, one of the finest port houses. Early picked, tiny yields have produced a vintage of the decade. Compact, dense ripe berries, layers of flavour and length. Wow factor.

Fonseca lies firmly in the top league of port houses, regularly scoring very highly with critics and much loved by consumers. From its first vintage release in 1840, they have consistently produced great ports. As critic James Suckling wrote, "The vintage Ports of Fonseca are perhaps the most consistently great of them all. Not only do they have a striking fleshiness and powerful richness when young, but they retain that youthfulness for decades." Parker calls them "the Pomerol of Vintage Port." There's certainly no hurry to drink the 2017 – a field blend of the Douro's top grapes, grown at Fonseca's three estates, Cruzeiro, Panascal and Santo António, each parcel of fruit lending different character. Ideally tuck this port away until 2030.

"Sappy and sensational in flavor and fruit, velvety texture and a long finish. Plenty of power here" Mark Squires
