About

93

"This seems like a night-and-day difference with the 1975 Kopke Colheita reviewed above. This is sweet, with little austerity. It has a gentle, burnished demeanor and a crisp finish that becomes rather powerful, belying the initial, restrained opening. Complex, caressing and ultimately intense, it is a nice if sometimes understated combination overall."

"Bottled in 2004. It feels like the first time and I know this is one Kopke that I've never had until now. Leave it to me to forget to note the color. ? Hopefully, I'll get to taste this again someday. On the heels of the Krohn from 1960, this initially comes off seemingly simple and flabby. It took several sips for my palate to adjust to the gentler acidity. In its own right, this is a fine Colheita and had the stuffing and the requisite structure indeed. Framed by light viscosity and soft but crisp acidity, this Kopke delivers concentrated sweet and tangy flavors of apricot preserves, white sultanas, toasted almond, brown sugar and grapefruit pith. The bittersweet nature of this Port provides the palate with complexity and refinement, texturally soft and a Colheita with great finesse. It finishes long and with more nuttiness than fruit on the aftertaste. I have experienced very few Ports of any kind from this rare vintage. "

Product Description:

"Established in 1638 by Christiano Kopke and his son, Nicolau Kopke, the House of Kopke is the oldest Porto Wine firm. Kopke is the market leader for Colheita single year tawnies, exceeding 25% in volume of the Global Share in this high quality Port. Kopke, has almost with 4 centuries of success in the Port Wine world and was bought by Sogevinus group in 2006. Nowadays is a reference in prestige. Most of its success comes from the Old Tawnies from a single year – Colheita Ports – high quality Wines matured in cask during a minimum period of 7 years. The hand stenciled Kopke Port bottles express the traditional artisan quality and nostalgic appeal long associated with the enjoyment of the finest ports.

Tawny - Maple in color with fragrant whiffs of honey, a gentle note of hazelnut gorgeous overtones of mahogany. Medium-bodied and exotic with a silky elegance layered with common cigar box spices. Bright acidity (a constant in the Kopke Brand) provides balance, showing an off-dry style with a long unrelenting finish filled with caramel and dried fruits." -Importer
