Kopke 10 Year old is lusciously smooth with complex notes of sweet spice and rich dried fruits balanced alongside honey and subtle wood. An endlessly long finish, this is a great choice with an array of desserts from chocolate brownies to crumble and a great selection of cheese. The perfect after-dinner digestif, best serve chilled.
Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into wine through a process of careful maceration to extract their colour, tannins and aromas, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation. This takes place in vats (lagares) at a controlled temperature (between 28-30°C) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. A wine of high quality, made by blending wines of different harvests to achieve the array of sensory qualities that are typical of these aged tawny Port wines. These wines have each matured in oak casks for varied periods of time, with the average age of all the wines in the blend defining the age on the label. The resulting blend expresses the characteristics given by the ageing in wood.
An appealing golden colour, with an amber rim. Elegant and complex, it shows aromas of spice, with prevailing notes of dried fruit and elegant hints of wood and honey. Smooth and round on the palate, it shows complexity amidst intense flavours of dried fruit. An excellent finish.
Nicest tawny port that I have tasted at virtually any price. Always good to have a bottle in stock
EW Wines always provide a good service. Keen prices and good delivery.
I've been buying this port since I first tried it in Heathrow airport. Excelent taste and quality at a reasonable price. The products arrived very fast. The packaging was secured. The product price was the most competitive. Will use this company again.
