Crafting wine experiences
The Region´s Excellence
in a Wine
Kopke’s Douro Reserva wines do not makefor analogies.
The experiences these wines will bring you do not compare to other wines in our range – nor other Reservas from other harvests-. Each has its ownpersonality, but their aim is the same:excellence in a wine.
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 is formed at the bottom of a bottle of Port wine.

Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats for 12 days, followed by 20 days of macerations with skins on. Matured for 14 months in new and second year French oak barrels of 225 litres.
Gathering the knowledge and enthusiasm of all the generations behind the excellence of the oldest Port wine House, Kopke Douro DOC Red Reserva is a complex wine, displaying rich aromas of fresh fruit, spice and notes of smoke. On the palate it reveals elegance and good texture, and its perfect acidity provides an enveloping sense of freshness. This wine has aged for 14 months in new and second year barrels of French oak, which has made it round and appetizing, with great ageing potential. Ideal to drink with game, red meat dishes or cheese.
Perfect with oily fish, cod or white meat.
