Unlike many Shippers who release a Single Quinta Vintage Port in non-classic declared years, Fonseca-Guimaraens isn’t a Single Quinta. It is a blend from the same Quinta’s that classic declared Fonseca’s come from. This allows them to be very selective in choosing the top barrels to blend into a high quality product. In essence, a Fonseca-Guimaraens is nothing more than a true Fonseca in a year not deemed a classic.

”The star of the show. The only wine that visibly showed its age with clear rim and red slightly brickish core colour. While showing the spiced dense desert fruit character associated with Fonseca's stable, this also had an ethereal elegance that presumably comes with age - rich and racy at the same time.” Christies, London
