Crafting wine experiences
Kopke celebrates its 380 years with a special edition CNK
The oldest Port wine House is releasing 380 numbered bottles of an exclusive Very Old Tawny Port in honour of Cristiano Nicolau Kopke, who founded Kopke in 1638.
Kopke CNK is an exquisite blend of wines from the 1920’s and 30’s, as well as the extremely rare Colheita 1900, which Kopke still holds in its wide stock of old wood-aged Ports. This is a one of a kind Port Wine that stands out for its complex flavours unfolding layer after layer!
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.
- VINIFICATION Get ot know more about the process
- TASTING NOTES The Wine DNA
Grapes picked by hand. Traditional fermentation process in wide granite tanks called lagares, with grapes trodden by foot, enabling the gentle and complete extraction of colour, aromas and structure.
Mahogany colour with green hues. On the nose it reveals intense and opulent aromas in a perfect combination of notes of spice such as clove, curry and black pepper and notes of dried fruit (hazelnut, fig, walnut), with hints of coffee, chocolate and molasses. The palate offers a remarkable marriage between acidity and sugar, resulting from all the decades of maturing in oak casks, whilst being fresh, full-bodied and audacious. Flavours of jelly, cinnamon, curry, nutmeg and light balsamic combine with other lighter notes of resin. A wine with complex flavours that develop layer after layer.
This wine reflects all the art and history of making and blending Port wines, which are the mark of the House of Kopke.
