Fonseca Bin No 27 Finest Reserve Port NV

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalAs famous as Fonseca Vintage Port is, you can multiply those drinkers by thousands who when it comes to Bin 27. It was launched more than 40 years ago in Britain but has become a particular favourite in North American. The market was searching for a no-fuss port with some power and fruit, right up Fonseca’s driveway. The goal was “a smooth, full-bodied and densely fruity blend in a style known at the time as 'vintage character' but usually known today as a finest reserve". The firm was in the habit of naming its crusted ports using bin numbers and Bin 27 was born. Little has changed today. The attack is sweet and spicy with a touch of fire, sugared blackberry, cassis, dark cocoa, black tea, and finished with black pepper. Christmas pudding comes to mind.Tasted: 05 November 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 23.99 BCLS MB 17.00 NS 23.00 SK 23.00 NB 24.00 Producer: Fonseca GuimaraensDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
