Store Kopke colheita port 2002 in a cool and dry place, shelter from light and temperature fluctuations, and keep the bottle in an upright position. Over time, it is natural that sediment will form at the bottom of a bottle of port wine.
Harvest starts with picking the grapes by hand at the optimum time, following with destemming and crushing. Eventually converted into wine through a process of careful maceration to extract their colour, tannins and aromas. Constant churning during fermentation takes place in vats at a temperature between 28-30°C until it reaches the right degree of sweetness.
At this point they add grape brandy to create the final fortified wine. A wine of high quality, made from one single harvest.
A colheira wine matures in oak barrels for periods of time that can vary, but never less than 7 years. Bottling occurs according to the demands of the market.
