Kopke Ten Years Old White Porto Matured in Wood NV

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalThis white port has an enticing golden sheen and a complex, nutty nose with spice, bits of dried fruit and old wood notes. The attack is smooth and round with complex dried fruit flavours from front to back. We tasted this chilled and recommend it as a simple but highly elegant aperitif. You can also serve it with foie gras or a mushroom risotto. It’s very fresh for its age and would be perfect with a crème brûlée. Traditional Douro grape varieties, grown at up to 600 metres above sea level over schist and sandstone interspersed with granite. The age on the label is the average age of all the wines in the blend. It’s fermented on its skins in stainless steel vats at temperatures between 16-18ºC to give them the structure required for long-term ageing.Tasted: 18 March 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 26.99 private wine shops AB 22.99 private wine stores QC 17.95 private wine stores Producer: Sogevinus/BarrosDistributors: David Herman & Son Ltd.
