Kopke Colheita Tawny Port 1987 750ml

Every wine tells a story. Kopke’s Colheitas, however, tell a unique story. To taste a wine is totaste history and, in the case of this 1987 Colheita, it means remembering a remarkable eventlike the celebration of the racing driver Nelson Piquet’s third championship in Formula 1.

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 from one single harvest. A Colheita wine matures in oak barrels for periods of time that can vary, but never less than 7 years. It is then bottled and sold according to the demands of the market.

A bright golden colour. Rich and fragrant bouquet, with prevailing aromas of dried fruit. Pleasant depth and remarkable structure. Velvety and enticing on the palate, with concentrated flavours of raisin and a hint of molasses. A wonderfully balanced Colheita, with a satisfying and persistent finish.

Served chilled, it reveals all its finesse and sophistication, especially when drunk with desserts made with caramel, dried fruit and spice, such as caramel fondant with apple and ginger jelly, tarte tatin, crème brulée and medium strength cheeses. Best served at a temperature between 12 and 14°C.
