Description

This 2010 Vintage Port Wine comes 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.

Vintage or “bottle-aged” ports must receive approval of the Port Wine Institute to declare a vintage of recognised quality. Then, the entire vintage must be bottled between the second and third year. Since it improves in the bottle, it maintains its red colour and red fruit flavors. It often takes 10 or more years to smooth the tannins and develop to its full potential, although, today, many consumers forego the complexities of ageing to enjoy the youthful robustness of the port in its younger years when it is still opaque and jammy.
