 Kopke Port, 1989

Colheita Port (Includes Kopke presentation box)

Description and Reviews:
Kopke Port is the oldest port house. Established in 1638 by Christiano Kopke and his son, Nicolau Kopke who came to Portugal as representatives of the Hanseatic League, the House of Kopke is the eldest Porto wine export firm. Through many generations, the Company was run by several representatives of the Kopke family, obtaining an excellent reputation for its wines.

Review:
Intense amber-tawny colour. Presents a complex and wonderfully elegant bouquet, standing-out the dried fruits, the vanilla and the involving roasting nuances. In the mouth it is dense and large, but at the same time, it is soft and delicate. Reveals a strong complexity and an amazing balance. Long and ambitious finish.

Colheita, or single harvest ports, are aged in the barrel. Contrast this with vintage ports which are aged in the bottle and only have a short drinking window after opening. Colheita ports have had air working on them through the cask during all the years of aging, giving them a open-life of a month or longer. Lighter and more delicate than vintage ports, the colheita ports are immediately understandable and enjoyable to the novice port drinker and an on-going pleasure to the experienced.
