A Quinta do Panascal Vintage Port is produced only when a general Fonseca declaration is not made, as this wine forms the backbone of a Fonseca Vintage Port blend. The decision to bottle a Quinta do Vintage is taken when the wine is judged to be of exceptional quality. The wine will spend two years ageing in vat before being bottled and will be released when it is ready to drink, normally 10 years after the harvest. These wines are lovely and intense and show great fruit, balance and structure.

Wine EnthusiastStructured, complex wine that is only just beginning to hint at considerable depth of powerful, rich flavors. The structure is dry, a little lean, but with dense tannins. The fruit, rich plums and stone fruits is just coming through. Age for 10 years.

Wine AdvocatePanascal is a Quinta that is blended to make Fonseca. A very conservative nose with blackberry, black coffee and just a hint of orange blossom. Moderate definition on the ripe, fleshy palate, which is surprisingly soft, and supple, overtly expressive at this early stage. Cherry, ripe strawberry and yet again a tang of blood orange and a dash of white pepper on the finish. Drinking 2010-2025. Tasted July 2007.
