Description

A 2005 colheita port wine from Kopke Port, the oldest port house. Established in 1638 by Nicolau Kopke and his son Cristiano, who came to Portugal as representatives of the Hanseatic League, the House has been run through the generations by several representatives of the Kopke family, obtaining an excellent reputation for its wines.

Review:
This single harvest or colheita style port from the 2005 vintage has bright and brown in the centre, with a reddish halo. Long and complex nose overflowing elegance and depth. The red fruit aromas harmonized with the dried fruits and slight touch of vanilla. Remarkable sophistication and flavour, in a fine and expressive mouth. Exemplar freshness, smooth and silky tannins of great desire. Long and intense 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 ongoing pleasure to the experienced.
