* excludes delivery (free standard UK delivery on orders over £100)
A 2003 vintage Colheita Port Wine from Kopke Port. The 2003 Kopke Single Harvest has an intense red colour with a tawny halo. Presents a complex bouquet of dried fruits, standing-out the spicy notes. Sophisticated and delicate in taste. Good structure, well-balanced acidity and a pleasant unctuousness. Long and persistent finish.
Enjoy this exemplary port lightly chilled with fruity desserts like tarte tatin, creme brulée or Christmas pudding, even rich chocolate mousse. The classic pairing of Stilton cheese is also excellent, as are ripe tropical fruits.
Kopke Port is 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.
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.
