Established in 1638, Kopke is the oldest Port house. Kopke Colheita Port Wines are globally renowned for their extraordinary award-winning quality. Made from a single harvest, they are aged in wood for as long as possible and are only bottled upon commission. 

Winemaker notes: Amber color with bright golden nuances. Complex and delicate nose, where the resinous aromas are well integrated with notes of almonds, honey and candied orange. Sweet, elegant and balanced on the palate, well involved by hints of caramel. Soft and persistent finish.

"There’s a hint of treacle here. It’s rich and dense with old furniture notes and lovely concentration and intensity. Nice depth." 96/100
– Jamie Goode

"Recent bottlings have the deep color, aromatics & vivacity of the legendary 1900. An exceptionally well-balanced tawny." 96 pts
– Roy Hersh, For the Love of Port

The wine should be stored in a cool and dry place, sheltered from light and temperature fluctuations, and the bottle should remain in an upright position. Over time, it is natural that sediment will form at the bottom of a bottle of Port wine. To assure its full quality and flavour, it should be stored in bottle for as little time as possible, and should be drunk soon once opened.
