Fonseca Terra Prima Organic Reserve Port NV

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalWhen this was launched in 2006, it was the first certified organic port to be released. As a ruby reserve style, it's not vintage dated, but the current incarnation of this wine is quite impressive (lot number LA20146). It's inky purple in colour with great intensity on the nose, combining lush, concentrated black fruits and an attractive floral lift that keeps things fresh. It's a wine that's meant to be both youthful and ready to drink on release, but there's still a tannic backbone here. If you're looking for something hedonistic to pair with dessert, this is just about perfect.Tasted: 16 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 29.99 BCLS AB 29.00 select private retailers MB 28.00 Manitoba Liquor Mart QC 28.50 ON 25.00 YK 33.00 NS 31.00 Producer: Fonseca GuimaraensDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
