1935 Kopke White Colheita

Post by AHB » 21:11 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Bottled 2016. Pale straw colour, less than 5% opaque. Fresh cut grass on the nose, full of dandelion sap. Smooth and honeyed on entry with a hint of gentle tannins. Fragrant dandelion on the palate, mixed with lots of attractive volatile and expressive flavours but offset by a good level of acidity that provides focus and balance. There is a surprising level of bitterness on the aftertaste and finish and an amazing length with a huge, bitter element. 93/100. 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
