1937 Kopke Colheita (Bottled 2017)

Post by AHB » 22:34 Sun 30 Apr 2017

Bottled 2017. Deep amber brown colour with a hint of green on the rim; 30% opaque. An amazing nose, incredibly concentrated and intense. The first sip brings a thick, tongue coating texture with marked but balanced acidity, tasting of gentle burnt sugar and orange concentrated crepe suzette. The aftertaste is stunning and the finish huge. This is an amazing port. 96/100. Drunk 04-Apr-17.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
