1967 Kopke Colheita (bottled 2017)

Post by AHB » 22:50 Wed 03 Jan 2018

Bottled 2017. Modest orange-brown colour; 10% opaque. A lovely cloud of toffee smells comes out of the glass, spicy and lively. Smooth palate , like liquid gold(en syrup) over diced pears and quince. Delicious hints of coffee show on the late palate. A big orange aftertaste and elegant burnt toffee finish. This is very nice port.

It was also confirmed that Sogevinus have no stocks of 1968 colheita. 95/100. 06-Nov-17.
