Description

A bottle of Fonseca's Finest 1944 Vintage Port, late bottled in 1948 in Oporto and shipped by Guimaraens & Co.

Please note, there is no size or ABV stated on the label, but this appears to be a 75cl bottle.

Fonseca Guimaraens, generally referred to simply as Fonseca, is one of the largest Port shippers in Portugal. Established in 1822 by Manuel Pedro Gonçalves Guimaraens and his brother João Gonçalves Salgueiro when they acquired control of the Fonseca and Monteiro Company from the Fonseca family. David Guimaraens, the great-great-great grandson of the founder Manuel Pedro, has been the head winemaker since 1994, and oversees the winemaking and blending for all four Taylor Fladgate Port houses: Taylor Fladgate, Fonseca Guimaraens, Croft, and Delaforce.
