The Oddbins Take

This shopping malarky is getting ridiculous. I could be standing here for hours. But a decision needs to be made now. The shop's tasting notes say that Fonseca Bin 27 Finest Port is 'The best blended port you're gonna find today or ever.' Well, that's easy for them to say..... Suddenly a lovely old lady sticks a bony elbow in my innards, shoves past and grabs a bottle. Then a spotty student also ducks in whilst exclaiming to his mate. 'That's totes dads fav'. I turn to start ranting about that bloody none existent word 'totes'. Before I open my mouth a bank robber politely steps past to buy a bottle with his new earnings. Turning around I find that my friend has already asked the staff and bought the same one. Bin 27 Finest Port. 'Come on J-dog. The staff here said they tasted it last night. Apparently, it's totes amazeballs dude'

Founded in 1815 Fonseca's released its first vintage port (under its own name) from the grapes of the highly successful year of 1840. Fonseca shapes it's wine style from its three estates in the Douro valley- Panascal, Cruzeiro and Santo António. This estate is part of the larger entity called the Fladgate Partnership (the name comes from another part of the same company; port producer and shipper-Taylor, Fladgate, and Yeatman). Fonseca has also become a pioneer of organic and sustainable viticulture. Its Santo Antonio vineyard is entirely organic. David Guimaraens is a sixth generation family member of the Guimaraens who was trained in Australia. He is now the head winemaker and technical director of the Fladgate Partnership.
