Description and Reviews:
the 2019 Kopke Vintage port is Available Duty paid including delivery to a UK mainland address.

In keeping with the legacy of Kopke – the oldest Port wine house, 2019 is “a firm, fresh and intense Vintage that shows great balance”, says Carlos Alves, Head winemaker for Fortified wines.

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 finish 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.
