1981 Kopke Colheita (bottled 2017)

Post by AHB » 22:53 Wed 03 Jan 2018

Bottled 2017. Deep burnished gold colour, but amazingly only 10% opaque. Attractive if muted nose of red pears. Smooth palate with acidity balanced by honey. Initially light and elegant but buids in its presence and weight very well. Bitter-sweet orange zest on the aftertaste is followed by a long length with great persistence. A lovely clean and honeyed port. 92/100. 06-Nov-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
