O Produtor, tasting note published in August 16th 2019

This precious wine is the result of a blend in which the oldest wine is nearly 75 years old and the youngest is about 50 years old, in a total of 10 harvests aged since its birth in old wooden casks. With a complex flavour, hazelnut, walnut and mint notes underlined by a balanced acidity, this topaz-coloured wine with brownish-ruby and greenish reflections, which attest to its advanced age, has a very long finish. This wine should be appreciated with great rigour and solemnity, as it is the last 2300 litres.

José Maria da Fonseca

A family business with almost two centuries of history, and one that has known how to stay up-to-date without ever sitting back on its laurels. José Maria da Fonseca has been making wines since 1834, resulting from the shared passion of a family that has known how to preserve and project the memory and the prestige of its founder. Well aware of the responsibility of being the oldest producer of table wine and Setúbal Moscatel in Portugal, José Maria da Fonseca follows a philosophy of permanent development, constantly investing in research and production, combining the latest techniques with traditional know-how. An example of this is the José de Sousa Rosado Fernandes Winery, at Reguengos de Monsaraz, Alentejo, where the Roman tradition of clay pot fermentation is maintained alongside the latest technology.

Continuing to invest in benchmark products at international level, always produced to the highest standard, José Maria da Fonseca has contributed decisively to the promotion and prestige of national wines. The nearly 650 hectares of vineyards and a winery equipped with the latest technology, which competes with the best in the world, produce wines that combine the experience gathered throughout its history with the most advanced winemaking techniques.

In addition to all these resources, what most characterizes the work at José Maria da Fonseca is a great passion for the art of winemaking. It is this passion capable of generating emotions that José Maria da Fonseca shares with consumers every time they try one of the company’s wines.
