Kopke Port, 1998

Colheita Port (Includes Kopke gift box as illustrated)

Review:
Garnet color, with a bright nose of pomegranate, strawberries and cherries. Cherry-vanilla flavour that lingers in the finish.

Colheita, or single harvest ports, are aged in the barrel. Contrast this with vintage ports which are aged in the bottle and only have a short drinking window after opening. Colheita ports have had air working on them through the cask during all the years of aging, giving them a open-life of a month or longer. Lighter and more delicate than vintage ports, the colheita ports are immediately understandable and enjoyable to the novice port drinker and an ongoing pleasure to the experienced.

1998 Fonseca Port

Quinta Do Panascal Vintage Port (Single bottle 75cl)

In years when Fonseca does not ‘declare' a classic vintage, it selects the finest grapes from its own vineyards to yield a small quantity of this wine, which is produced exactly as a declared Fonseca Vintage. Beautifully structured and perfectly balanced this is an earlier maturing style than the classic vintage port.

Review:
Restrained on the nose, with licorice-like richness beneath; opulent, broad and sweet with fresh berry fruit and a touch of dark chocolate and spicy, peppery tannins on the finish.

Price: £39.00 (4 in Stock)

1998 Taylor's

Quinta de Vargellas Vintage Port, HALF BOTTLE (37.5cl) (Comes in a Leather Effect Box with Silk Liner as illustrated)

Very typical Taylor's style on the nose, rather reserved, spicy and stylish fruit. Gentle, and a lovely silkiness to at the start. Fine fruit, very stylish composition. Appropriate grip and texture. Lots of tannin evident on a second taste. This is rather good. From a Port Styles tasting. 16.5-17+/20 (Wine Doctor 2007).
