Tasting Notes
This 50 Year Old Tawny Port is a rich, complex wine with a deep amber colour and golden-brown rim. Its aroma is rich and complex, with notes of dried fruits, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, roasted nuts, and subtle wood, spice, and citrus zest. The palate is smooth and velvety, with layers of dried fruits, caramel, brown sugar, nutty character, molasses, dark chocolate, and coffee. The finish is long and complex, with lingering flavors of dried fruits, caramel, nuts, and spice. The wine is perfect for special occasions and contemplative sipping. A magnificent wine with a wonderful balance of sweetness and acidity.

Serving & Food Pairing:
Tawny Ports are ready-to drink and do not require decanting. Best enjoyed slightly chilled at 12-13ºC they will work wonders if pairing with treacle tart, crème brulee or nut based desserts, like hazelnut praline.

Kopke is one of the oldest port wine houses in Portugal and is renowned for its high-quality fortified wines. Established in 1638 by Cristiano Köpke, a German diplomat, Kopke has a long history of producing exceptional port wines. Kopke is particularly known for its Colheita Ports, which are single vintage tawny ports aged in oak barrels for a minimum of seven years before bottling. These ports offer a unique expression of a single vintage and are highly prized by port wine enthusiasts. The house also produces a range of other port styles, including vintage ports, white ports, and aged tawnies. Kopke's ports are celebrated for their elegance, complexity, and longevity, making them a favorite among collectors and connoisseurs.
