NV Kopke 10YO White (bottled 2016)

Post by AHB » 22:55 Wed 03 Jan 2018

Bottled December 2016. Honey colour, 5% opaque. Little on the nose other than a hint of plastic resin. Neutral at first on the palate, then some honey and some tobacco. Late on the palate this develops more flavour to show some pear and pineapple. The finish is nice, but this strikes me as being a bit of an acquired taste. 86/100. 06-Nov-17.
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
