2012 Kopke Sao Luiz

Post by AHB » 12:33 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Scarlet in colour, 99% opaque at the centre. A wonderful perfumed nose, full of raspberries and roses on a summer's evening. Fruit and that flower fragrance dominates the entry. On the palate the fruit is light and elegant and wonderfully floral but the powerful dry tannins give plenty of structure. The finish is big and fruit led and has a good length. This is a lovely style of port. 91-93/100. 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
