1980 Kopke Colheita (bottled 2020)

Post by AHB » 11:54 Wed 17 Jun 2020

Sample bottle filled 2020. A blend of 25% Touriga Nacional, 25% Tinta Roriz, 25% Touriga Franca, 25% Tinta Barroca.

A deep golden brown colour, 30% opaque. Gentle red pear on the nose, attractive and nutty. Lovely thick texture, rich honey flavours yet with fresh concentrated orange. Mouthfilling and very tasty, a great palate with some wonderful intensity - great acidity. Warm honeyed aftertaste, soft and nuanced, and a long intense orange oil finish. Very good indeed. 92/100. Tasted 17-Jun-20.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
