This is a special commemorative bottling to celebrate 200 years of the house of Fonseca. Crusted is a traditional style of Port and Fonseca is one of the few firms that continue to produce it. It is a blend of full bodied wines which spend four years ageing in large wooden vats, the wines are then bottled with no filtration and cellared for three years before being released for sale. As the name indicates, it will form a 'crust' or sediment in the bottle and should be decanted before being served.

Bottled in 2008 this excellent port displays a totally opaque inky black colour with a deep very dark red black hue. Lifted aromas of black plum, liquorice and raisins with some well integrated brandy spirit, marzipan and spice also present. Full bodied the palate has superb richness and a luscious textural feel delivering mouthfilling flavours of Morello cherries, liquorice and raisins with well integrated brandy spirit and marzipan following. Clean dry finish showing excellent balance. Long aftertaste of liquorice, ripe Morello cherry, raisins and marzipan.
Drink over the next 8-10 years.
