10, 20 and 40 year old Tawnies from Fonseca

fonseca tawny

Had a chance to run through these aged tawnies from Fonseca. The 10 year old is pretty good, but the 20 and 40 year olds are remarkable wines, showing lovely elegance and purity, and some red fruit character still. When Tawny is good, it’s pretty irresistible.

Fonseca 10 Year Old Tawny
Warm and spicy with lovely depth. Sweet with some raisiny notes here, with richness and intensity. Bold but quite elegant. 92/100

Fonseca 20 Year Old Tawny
Super elegant, fine and expressive with lovely fresh, fine cherry fruit. Subtle raisin notes here. Lovely precision and elegance here. 95/100

Fonseca 40 Year Old Tawny
This is remarkable: fine with lovely delicacy. Such purity and complexity, showing pretty, fine red cherry fruit. Astonishing purity to this. 97/100
