Sold Out

Product Information

Blended for consistency of character and quintessentially Fonseca in style, the reserve blend provides reliable and affordable value. In 2015 Fonseca commemorated the bicentenary of Fonseca and also of the final dramatic engagement of the Napoleonic Wars, the Battle of Waterloo. By the time Fonseca began trading on 8th April, 1815, Napoloean's forces has been driven from the Iberian Peninsula. On 18th June, 1815, the Wars finally ended with the defeat at Waterloo of Napoleon's Grande Armee by the Prussian army and Anglo-Dutch forces led by the Duke of Wellington. This robust full-bodied Reserve Port celebrates the 200th anniversary of the victory of the House of Fonseca.

Tasting Notes

A deep and youthful ruby colour, with an intense, fruity nose crammed with blackberry, blueberry, cherry and dark plum aromas. The palate is full-bodied and round, with a luscious, silky, velvety texture. 

How to Serve

It is an excellent desert wine, particularly with ripe, blue cheeses. It should be served at room temperature.
