- Porto Kopke is universally recognized as the first Port house in Port wine history. Kopke was founded in 1638 by the Germans Cristiano and Nicolaus Kopke. In 2013, Porto Kopke celebrated 375 years of continuous production of fine wine from its famous Quinta São Luiz. The house offers excellent examples of cask-aged and bottled-aged ports. Most wines are available in full and half bottles and showcase the distinctive hand-painted bottles long the tradition in the Port region. Additionally, Kopke is the global leader for Colheita, also known as "single year tawny ports", exceeding 25% of the global share of this high quality classification of Port. No wonder that these vintage dated ports rank among the top releases, since grapes are harvested from very old vines (up to 100 years old) yielding small amounts of very intense fruit from Kopke's famous Font Santa vineyard at the Quinta São Luiz with its many gold-medal winning vintages.
An intense brown colour, with a brick-coloured rim that shows its longevity. On the nose, it shows appealing aromas of dried fruit and marked notes of smoke. Silky and delicate on the palate, with remarkable structure and elegance. The flavours of plum, dried fig and vanilla are well-balanced, giving the wine a unique and distinct style. A singularly persistent finish.
