As it matures in cask, Tawny Port gradually loses the deep red 'ruby' colour of youth and takes on the seductive amber hue known as 'tawny'. At the same time the wine becomes progressively smoother and mellower, its aromas gaining in richness and complexity.

The fruit has mellowed further in the 20 Year Old. Deep amber in colour with russet highlights. Its superb bouquet is a complex marriage of ripe, mature fruit, warm spicy overtones of cinnamon and butterscotch and subtle oak nuances.

TASTING NOTE
Fonseca 20 Year Old Tawny is deep amber in color with russet highlights. Its superb bouquet is a complex marriage of ripe, plummy, mature fruit, warm spicy overtones of cinnamon and butterscotch and subtle oak nuances.

WINE SPECTATOR INSIDER - MAY 2012 – 94 POINTS
"Intense, powerful and complex, this features heady aromas and flavors of toffee, marzipan, butterscotch and chocolate. Notes of mocha and French roast chime in as well, with a long, glorious finish of dried white fruits and spice."

"Medium garnet colour. Nose is spirity and opulent. Palate carries a rancio-like character that features berries, wood and nutty aspects. All around winner which is at its peak of development."
