10 year old Tawny Port
Description and Reviews:
Attractive brown-tawny colour, with amber halo. Elegant and complex, presents spicy aromas, standing-out the dried fruits and the elegant notes of wood and honey. Smooth and round in the taste, shows its complexity upon the essence of intense dried fruits flavours. Excellent finish.

Nutty aromas are followed by a soft and sweet style of wine. It has just enough acidity and wood aging to keep it vibrant. Sweet fruits and molasses flavors give a smooth, attractive and fresh wine.

“ Fine nose of toasted almonds with butterscotch & honey. Smooth, unctuous and very tasty…I liked this Kopke for the textural pleasure and pure nutty flavor that led to the persistent aftertaste.” 91 pts. Roy Hersh, FortheLoveofPort
Kopke Port is the oldest port house. Established in 1638 by Christiano Kopke and his son, Nicolau Kopke (who came to Portugal as representatives of the Hanseatic League, the House of Kopke is the eldest Porto wine export firm. Through many generations, the Company was run by several representatives of the Kopke family, obtaining an excellent reputation for its wines.
Tawny ports are Port wine, matured in wood. 10 years refers to the average age of maturation.
Kopke commands the leading tawny Port market position in the Netherlands and other countries. Aged in wood casks until they are completely mature, Tawny ports are a golden color with multi-dimensional layers of aromas and flavors.The domination of Vintage Ports in past years is now challenged by the advantages of the tawnies, especially vintage colheita tawnies for restaurants and retail consumers. Where vintage ports have immediate air shock upon opening the bottle wherein they were aged and have a shelf life of only a few hours to a week; tawny 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 tawnies are immediately understandable and enjoyable to the novice port drinker and an ongoing pleasure to the experienced.
