1965 Kopke Colheita

Post by AHB » 21:31 Sun 14 Jun 2015

Bottled 2015. Burnt orange in colour with an olive green rim. Typical big colheita VA on the nose with lots of almond paste but with a fresh salty streak. Thick and slightly syrupy in texture. Golden syrup and sea-salt on the palate which has a good dose of cleansing acidity. There is a honey sweetness and some delightful floral components. Some faint tannins show on the aftertaste, followed by a huge wave of honey and quince. A great length; impressive port. 91/100. 06-May-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
