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 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
