1979 Kopke Colheita Port (375ml)

SKU #1225290 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1979 Colheita Tawny Port is an equal blend of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and Tinta Barroca bottled in May of 2019 with 134 grams of residual sugar and a bar-top cork. Lovely, this has a remarkably fresh feel for what amounts to a 40 Year Tawny. It's a bit light and not terribly intense, but its caramel edge and flavor-filled finish is a treasure. (MS) Inner quote mark (7/2019)

K&L Notes

The German Family named Kopke came from Hamburg to Lisbon in 1636. Two years later, in 1638, Christiano Kopke established himself in Oporto, as merchant and exporter of Portuguese products, and he started the export of Portuguese wines already produced in the region, as part of his business. When the Wine - then known as Portwine - was recognized, the House of Kopke which is today the oldest Portwine's export firm, was one of the leaders in the field. Through many generations, the company was run by several members of Kopke's family, obtaining an excellent reputation for its wines, especially its vintage tawny. This is a wonderful birthday or anniversary bottle.
