Kopke 10-year-old White Tawny Port

SKU #1062116

What is a white Tawny Port? Good question. Produced from white grapes grown in the Douro, this beautiful Tawny is elaborated over time in wood barrels in a similar way to traditional Tawnies. However, the similarity stops there, as this unique product actually averages 15 years of age (it just does not state so because 15 year-old Tawny is not a recognized category). However, one look at the beautiful deep golden color, a whiff of the lovely, complex aromatics, and a sip of this elixir, and you will understand what a truly amazing wine this is. It honestly is much more compelling than most 20-year-old Tawnies on the market, showing incredibly deep, nuanced, flavors and a wonderful texture. It's awesome port, a real eye opener.

Country:

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds.
Sub-Region:

Port

- Port is a fortified wine made by stopping the fermentation with brandy. The result is a heavy sweet wine, most often red, that is dense, rich and high in alcohol. Port is made all over the world with some great results in Australia and South Africa, but the most famous of these dessert wines come from Portugal. The great port houses (or lodges) are located along the Duoro River on the steep slate slopes high above the valley floor. There are several styles of port, including Ruby, Tawny, Vintage Character, Late Bottle Vintage, Colheita, and Single Quinta. Vintage ports are made in special years that the houses declare.
