In the early 1950s, the rising demand for vintage Ports led Fonseca Guimaraens to create a second vintage Port under the ""Guimaraens"" label in ""non-classic,"" or undeclared, years. There is a considerably smaller blend of Guimaraens Vintage produced than of Fonseca Vintage Porto, and these non-classic wines, for their quality and rarity, offer an exceptional value. True to the Fonseca style, Guimaraens Vintage Ports are intensely rich and concentrated, with a voluptuous femininity and sublime, velvety texture. Beautifully structured and perfectly balanced, they show the superb marriage of power and breed for which the house of Fonseca Guimaraens is renowned. As all vintage Ports, they will continue to mature in bottle and throw a crust, requiring a careful decanting prior to serving.
