Description

the 2018 Kopke Vintage port is exclusive to VWP. Due to the small production we have been nominated as the exclusive UK stockists for the 2018 Kopke Vintage Port.

The 2018 Kopke is concentrated, surprisingly fresh and with a crispy acidity. This is Quinta de Sao Luiz 2018 Vintage Port.

TASTING NOTES
Concentrated and with a deep dark colour, fresh and exuberant on the nose with layered notes
of black fruit, this Vintage stands out for its structure and balance, whilst delivering firm
tannins, true to the style of Kopke's Vintage Single Quinta. Its crispy acidity combined with
the layered Flavours of fruit fresh make this wine engaging, and the intense fnish anticipates
great ageing potential.

QUINTA DE S. LUIZ
Located on the left bank of the Douro river, in the Cima Corgo subregion, experienced a
winemaking year lled with contrasts: an extremely dry and cold winter, followed by heavy
rain in the spring and early summer, with occasional hail. When summer came at last, it
brought the hottest August and September months of the last decade, with average
maximum temperatures of 35.8°C recorded at the weather station of Quinta de São Luiz.
Despite the high temperatures of the summer, the leaves protected the berries from sunburn
and the vines were able to extract the much needed water and nutrients from the soil. By
the time the harvest started the grapes were in great health and perfectly ripe.
For this Vintage we selected grapes from the lower and middle lots of the hill, with north /
north-west solar exposure, and only from vines planted between 110 and 135m altitude. The
blend includes 50% of Touriga Nacional, conferring it freshness and notes of fruit, and 50%
of Old Vines (80 years old or more), which give the wine assertiveness, concentration and
freshness.
4435 bottles of this Cálem Vintage 2018 Port were produced, in a category that is increasingly becoming a classic of this Port house.
