Description

Kopke Late Bottle Vintage Port 2018 is produced from a blend of indigenous grape varities grown in old vineyards with schist-sandstone and granite soils in the Douro wine region. The grape varieties included are Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo) and Sousão and they are handpicked. Late Bottled Vintage port or LBV port is vintage wine aged between 4 and 6 years in large oak vats before bottling in order to soften the tannins making it more approachable upon release than straight vintage port. The aim is also to retain the rich fruit flavours. The port is bottled unfiltered and laid down in bottle to finish its maturation.

This port manages to combine youthful fruitiness – cherries, plums, and strawberries – with dark chocolate and rich sweet spices. More detail coming soon. The port is is full-bodied and intense with a long finish. It is ready for drinking now and will continue to improve for a few more years gaining in complexity like a young vintage port.

How to enjoy this wine

As this port is unfiltered, stand the bottle upright for a couple of hours before decanting & leave a couple of hours before serving. Read more about decanting in my blog. Once the bottle is opened drink within 10 days unless using a wine preservation system and then within 4 to 6 months. Serve at: 12 – 14°C

 

Recommended on its own after dinner, with rich desserts or with cheeses; it goes especially well with Stilton, Gorgonzola, Roquefort, Parmesan and Camembert.

Producer's Notes

Deep dark-purple colour with a vibrant and intense ruby rim. Aromas of ripe wild berries on the nose, combined with notes of violet, black pepper and hints of eucalyptus leaf. In the mouth the firm tannins stand out, together with a vibrant and crisp acidity. All aromas are perfectly combined, with aftertaste flavours of raspberry, blackberry and apricot, ending in a long and enduring finish, so characteristic of Kopke.”
