75cl * Porto, Portugal
Guimaraens (Fonseca's vintage Port from undeclared years) 1998 charms with its deep and intoxicating aromas of ripe blackberry, milk chocolate and wood spice. Plump and rounded, it is staggeringly affordable for the quality.

This bottle is part of a wine cellar purchased from a highly respected Master of Wine (MW) with whom I have worked for many years and who is recognised as one of the world’s Italian wine experts. It has been stored in the MW’s own cellar or climate-controlled storage and I have every belief that it is in tip-top condition. However, as with all purchases of this nature there has to be an element of caveat emptor to proceedings – as such, we will not be able to offer refunds or returns on this item.
