Fonseca Bin no 27 was created over a century ago for family consumption, and only released commercially in 1972. It is produced primarily from wines from Fonseca’s own quintas in the Cima Corgo and thus allows an exceptional quality and consistency from year to year.
Blended from reserve wines selected for their intense fruit character and depth of colour, Fonseca Bin no 27 spends four years in large wood vats prior to bottling.
Although it may improve slightly with bottle age, Bin no 27 is ready to consume when bottled. It does not require decanting, as a cold precipitation prior to bottling prevents any ‘crust’ from forming.
TASTING NOTE: Deep youthful ruby colour. Intense rich fruity nose crammed with pure blackberry, cassis, cherry and plum aromas interwoven with notes of spice.
The palate full bodied and round, with a smooth velvety texture balanced by firm mouth filling tannins. The juicy black fruit flavours linger into the rich luscious finish.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: The rich black fruit flavours of Bin 27 are a perfect match for chocolate and berry fruit dishes. A chocolate fondant with strawberries makes a deliciously hedonistic combination with Bin 27, the rich creamy chocolate and luscious ripe strawberries blending seductively with the blackcurrant and cherry fruitiness of the wine. Bin 27 is also excellent served after a meal with bitter chocolate with a high cocoa content or a plate of chocolate brownies or truffles. Like all youthful red Ports, Bin 27 is an excellent match for soft ripe cheeses and can be served on its own at the end of the meal or any other relaxed occasion in a generously proportioned wine glass.
