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.

- RECOMMENDATIONS The best scenario to enjoy
The harvest was made in the second week of September by hand to small capacity boxes. Vinification was carried out with total destemming and crushing. Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats for 12 days followed by peculiar maceration for 15 days. Part of the malolactic fermentation in barrels. Matured in new and second year french oak barrels of 225 litres for 14 months.
This Reserva shows a fine nose, with aromas of black fruit and notes of spice. With a textured and elegant palate, it is unctuous and persistent. The freshness of the fruit is enveloped by fine yet powerful tannins. A full-bodied wine of great complexity.
Perfect with oily fish, cod or white meat.
