Taste history with the oldest Port wine house

Taste history with the oldest brand of Port wine. Every wine tells a story. Kopke’s Colheitas, however, tell a unique story. To taste a wine is to taste history and, in the case of this 1957 Colheita, it means remembering a remarkable event like the signature of the Treaty of Rome, which established the European Economic Community (EEC).

 

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 after purchase.

  • VINIFICATION
  • NOTAS DE PROVA O DNA do vinho
  • RECOMENDAÇÕES O melhor cenário para disfrutar
  • O processo de fabrico inclui a paragem da fermentação do mosto pela adição de aguardente vínica (benefício ou aguardentação), a lotação de vinhos e o envelhecimento. Fermentação em lagares com maceração pelicular e remontagens à temperatura de 29ºC até atingir o Baumé desejado, adicionando-se nesta fase aguardente. Vinho de elevada qualidade proveniente de uma só colheita. Estagia em madeira durante períodos de tempo variáveis, nunca inferiores a 7 anos, sendo posteriormente engarrafado mediante as solicitações de mercado.

  • Cor âmbar com brilhantes nuances aloiradas. Nariz complexo e delicado, onde se destacam os aromas resinosos bem integrados com notas de amêndoas, mel e laranja confitada. Paladar doce, elegante e equilibrado, bem envolvido pelas sugestões de caramelo. Final macio e persistente.

  • Ideal para acompanhar bolos de noz e amêndoas. Servir a uma temperatura entre 12 e 14ºC.
