Fonseca Terra Prima Organic Port

A complex, vibrant organic Fonseca port from Waitrose

Fonseca is a pioneer of organic viticulture in Portugal's Douro Valley. Part of Quinta do Panascal in the Távora Valley was converted to organic viticulture in 1992 and today its vineyards at Quinta de Santo Antonio are entirely certified for organic production.

Terra Prima was created in 2002 when Fonseca was able to source grape spirit made from certified organically farmed grapes.

Dark fruits and eucalyptus with damp undergrowth.

Sweet, ripe, mouthwatering cassis and cooked cherries with figgy fruitcake, eucalyptus, tobaccoey cigar box and sweet spices. All finished off with a lick of toasty oak.

Long, savoury and well-integrated.

Pure, vibrant and poised - very accomplished. Very Good.

A dessert in its own right - or match with chocolate and black cherry torte.

£17.50 from Waitrose; provided for review
