DESCRIPTION

Kopke 20 Years Old Tawny Port

TASTE HISTORY WITH THE OLDEST PORT WINE HOUSE

If time is marked by special moments, Kopke's history is written in exceptional years. Years that are worth keeping, so they can be relived and celebrated any time. When we retrieve years from Kopke's history, we are creating more history: the age on the label of this Kopke Port wine is the average age of all the wines in the blend.

VINIFICATION

Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into wine through a process of careful maceration to extract their colour, tannins and aromas, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation. This takes place in vats (lagares) at a controlled temperature (between 28-30°C) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. A wine of high quality, made by blending wines of different harvests to achieve the array of sensory qualities that are typical of these aged tawny Port wines. These wines have each matured in oak casks for varied periods of time, with the average age of all the wines in the blend defining the age on the label. The resulting blend expresses the characteristics given by the ageing in wood.

TASTING NOTES

A delicate orange-green colour. Its splendid nose is a complex marriage of dried fruit, spice and notes of fine wood. On the palate, its flavours are rich and concentrated, with a long and velvety finish.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Irresistible with a starter of foie gras with aubergine and walnuts. A great choice for an endless array of desserts, such as toffee brownies, chocolate and pistachio pavé, or crostini of walnuts with chèvre. Best served at a temperature between 12 and 14°C.

AWARDS AND HONORS

International Wine and Spirits Competition - Gold (2015) Robert Parker - 92 pts (2016)
