Organic Port and Stilton Gift
Fonseca Terra Prima Organic Port
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 flavour supported by firm, but well
integrated tannins. A deliciously textured Reserve Port which is velvety, smooth,
succulent and plump.
“Sweet, ripe, mouthwatering cassis and cooked cherries
with figgy fruitcake, eucalyptus, tobaccoey cigar box and
sweet spices…very accomplished.”
Tom Lewis, the Cambridge Wine Blogger, August 2014
Details of production
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
