Fonseca Terra Prima is a wonderfully rich, concentrated Port with great flavour and texture. It has an opulent black fruit nose which is followed through on the palate showing layers of intense berry, plum and cherry fruit flavours supported by firm, but well integrated tannins. A deliciously textured Reserve Port which is velvety, smooth, succulent and plump
Fonseca was one of the pioneers of organic viticulture in the Douro valley. An area of its flagship estate, Quinta do Panascal in the Távora Valley, was converted to organic viticulture in 1992 and today its Quinta de Santo António in the Pinhão Valley is entirely certified for organic production. In 2002 it became possible for the first time to produce a Port made entirely from grapes derived from certified organic viticulture. This was due to an agreement with a specialised distiller who was able to supply grape spirit for fortification made from certified organically farmed grapes. The result was Terra Prima Reserve, an elegant reserve blend, displaying fresh vibrant fruit, in which organic viticulture has allowed the traditional port grape varieties to express their natural aromas to the full.
