Kopke Colheita Porto 1978
Brick-colored, with an amber rim. Its nose is appealingly spiced, with enhancing notes of dried fruit. In the mouth, it is well-balanced and unctuous, with remarkable structure. A fabulous Colheita, full of elegance, with a complex and enduring finish. Served chilled, it reveals all its finesse and sophistication, especially when drunk with desserts made with caramel, dried fruit and spice, such as caramel fondant with apple and ginger jelly, tarte tatin, crème brulée and medium-strength cheeses.
Not one of the generally declared vintages for Port, this year produced some ripe, sweet single quinta vintages. It also was a good year for rich, sweet tawnies. This is ripe, toffee-like in character packed with ripe raisin and sultana flavors. It is a luxurious wine, of course ready to drink.
Crisp and spicy, with dried citrus, maple and ginger flavors, supported by fresh acidity. White chocolate and cardamom notes flood the tangy finish. Drink now. 200 cases imported.
