1941 Kopke Colheita

Post by AHB » 13:29 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Bottled 2016. Olive brown with a light green rim. Subdued on the nose but with a lovely texture on the palate, a big presence but one which is slow to arrive. The acidity is powerful and there are even some tannins on the palate! The finish is great with a little heat but a very, very long length that is a little cloying right at the end. This is an port which is intense, full of syrup and brown sugar balanced by fresh green apple acidity. 90/100. Tasted 02-Mar-16.
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
