1957 Kopke Colheita

Post by AHB » 13:30 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Bottled 2016. Olive brown colour with a slight green rim. Some gentle VA on the nose; balanced entry with the acidity leading with fruit flavours slow to follow. Soft golden syrup shows on the mid-palate with dried dates and a great depth. A deeply flavoured aftertaste with a heavy and lovely finish. This is a much more burly wine than some of the younger Kopke colheitas drunk the same day. 89/100. 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
