ABOUT THE WINE
The history of the Kope Port House began in 1638, when Nicolau Kopke, Consul General of the Hanseatic League of Baltic states, began shipping wine to northern Europe. In 1781 a farm in the Douro was purchased, and the House began producing their own wines. The company remained in the hands of the Kopke family into the 1800s, when the great-great grandson of the founder was elevated to the title of Baron of Vilar. In 1922, the Quinta de San Luiz was purchased, an A-grade 125-hectare estate which would become the home of Kopke.

TASTING NOTES
Wood and cherry aromas, a hint of resin and raisin, remarkably vibrant and fresh. Superbly nutty on the palate: walnut, cashew, hazelnut, with a delightful honey-fruit background. This is an incredible drinking experience, from one of the finest Port vintages in history.

FOOD PAIRING
Beautiful on its own as a winter-warmer, or with cheese, especially a creamy blue. Pairs well with savoury snacks like salted nuts or olives in brine. Best served lightly chilled.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
A Colheita Port is single-vintage Port aged in wood for at least 7 years, but usually for far longer – the current batch of the 1985 was bottled in 2020, which means that this wine has been ageing in barrel for 35 years.
