  • Description


Crusted is a rare, traditional style of Port wine and is a blend of full bodied wines which spend four years ageing in large wooden vats. The wines are then 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. This crust formation 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 ports from the top quality Cima Corgo area of the Douro Valley and only made in small quantities.

A powerful aromatic bouquet. Dark berry fruits on the nose and palate. Great layers of complexity and flavours of plump raisin, spice and eucalyptus as well as berry fruit flavours. An elegant and finely balanced wine.
