1957 Kopke Colheita

Post by AHB » 12:04 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Bottled 2015. Brown in colour with red hues; 50% opaque. Served very cold this had a plastic edge to the nose but was rich and concentrated on the palate with significant levels of tannins drying the cheeks. Big in flavour and with a powerful apple acidity that balances the honey sweetness, this is a well structured port. The finish is cheek-tingling and full of chewy honey. Delicious. 94/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
