The Fonseca bin 27 is one of the most famous and best selling ports ever made. It is a blend of selected reserve ports chosen for their smooth, round, full bodied palate and their fine, intense fruit character. Some of the wines used in the blend are drawn from Fonseca’s own estate and other made form the grapes supplied by independent farmers. The wines used in the blend are matured in large seasoned oak vats to give them smoothness and complexity while retaining their intense and vibrant fruit character that is reminiscent for the house of Fonseca.
The Bin 27 is only bottled when it is ready to drink and can be served by the glass directly from the bottle. Consistency of character is vital for the blend that is quintessentially Fonseca in style with a reliable and affordable value.
The colour of the Fonseca bin 27 is a young ruby red. On the nose it is intense of rich fruit with pure blackberry, cassis, cherry and plum aromas interwoven with notes of spice. The palate is full bodied and round, with a smooth velvety texture balanced by firm mouth filling tannins. The finish is of juicy black fruit flavours and wild berries.
