1998 Kopke Colheita (Bottle - 1/75cl)
Not to be confused with Vintage Ports, Colheitas although also from a single and outstanding vintage are different due to their aging process. Firstly aged in Cask for at least 7 years followed by as many as 50 years ageing in wood. Colheitas are rarer than Vintage Ports making up only 1% of the production, they represent great value and are often fantastic to drink. The 1998 from Kopke offers a fantastic entry level Colheita, at a great price. Full of flavours of raisin and prune, this is sweet and delicious with a touch of spice and a definite nuttiness on the palate. Pair this with a range of cheeses and you wont be disappointed.
