Kopke Port

kopke-vintage-portIn 1636 German diplomat Nicolau Kopkë travelled with his son, Cristiano, from Hamburg to Portugal, representing the Hanseatic League. Two years later, he founded Nicolau Kopkë & Co., a shipping company which would eventually become universally recognised as the first Port House in the industry’s history. In 1781 they bought a farm in the Douro, making the transition from shipper to major producer and gradually making Port Wine their main business focus.

In 1828 C. N. Kopkë, great-great-grandson of Nicolau, sided the company with the Liberal Party during Portugal’s civil war. Following the war, he was awarded the title of Baron of Vilar and a decade later his nephew the title Baron of Massarelos. In 1841 the company’s name was changed to C. N. Kopke and remains such to this day. Almost a century later, in 1940, the House was awarded official recognition as the oldest in the world. Kopke have an excellent reputation backed by many gold medals, particularly for their Tawny (barrel-aged) Ports. Befitting their status as the oldest Port House, their bottles are easily recognisable by their traditional and hand-stencilled style.

Kopke Port, 1989

Vintage Port

A very rare bottle of Kopke VP. This is one of those noses where you can keep going back and finding things you think it smells like. I really like that. A bit punchy initially with it's alcohol, the finish is where this wine really shines. Starts off as fresh popcorn, turning hazelnuts and honey, then granola and brown sugar..... off into a 40-second long finish with various evolution in which I am sure different people would find different things. Truly delicious. This wine is very, very good. I love it when a wine forces you to think about it, and this does just that. Captivating, complex, intense and delicious.

Decanter 2021 Silver Award Winner
Comes in Original Gift Box

***94 Points- Mark Squires, eRobertParker.com 23 March 2016***

Review:
The 1978 Kopke Colheita Tawny Port was bottled in 2015 with 119 grams per litre of residual sugar and a bar top cork (typical for the house). It is very graceful for its age, finishing with a wave of sweetness, fruit and sugar. Emphasizing the caramel more than the molasses, this is irresistibly delicious, but it becomes more complex and puts on weight as it airs and warms. The wine shows off its power and hints of Brandy on the rather tense finish, too. Overall, this is a beauty that becomes more impressive the longer you sit with it.

Attractive amber colour. Rich and perfumed nose dominated by the presence of the dried fruits, harmoniously involved by the spice notes. Smooth and silky in the taste, reveals an amazing structure and a good volume. The elegance describes this delicate whole and is extended in the endless and distinct finish.

Kopke Port

50 Year White Port
Half Bottle 37.5cl

Kopke, one of the most emblematic Port wine houses, recently launched its 50 Year Old Tawny and White Ports, “wines that celebrate the wisdom of time”.

Port wines with an indication of age were until now associated with labels 10, 20, 30 and 40 and are the ultimate expression of the art of blending. Now we are presented with the new 50 years category, wines “of extreme fineness and delicacy, which provide moments of delight and contemplation, layer by layer, which make them the ideal option for special celebrations”. These are wines that require extra work and a very special accompaniment to ensure that they evolve in complexity, while preserving the richness of aromas.
