NV Kopke 30YO Tawny (Bottled 2015)

Post by AHB » 12:12 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Bottled 2015. Served chilled and therefore showing little on the nose. A lovely, smooth texture. A great structure on the palate with significant tannins compensating for limited acidity to balance the sweetness and dried fruit. The combination is unusual for a TWIoA and combine to give a great palate. Sadly the lack of acidity does detract from the aftertaste and finish and results in a slightly flabby impression. 88/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
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
