1961 Kopke Colheita (Bottled 2017)

Post by AHB » 22:37 Sun 30 Apr 2017

Bottled 2017. Pale brown, 10% opaque. A huge nose of roasted nuts is followed by a wine with a lovely texture. Honeyed entry bringing walnuts and golden syrup is offset by a strong acidity which shows on the aftertaste, before an intense and sticky honey finish lingers around for a good while. A lovely port. 92/100. 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
