Kopke 40 year old tawny port is irresistible with a starter of foie gras with aubergine and walnuts. Great with an array of desserts, such as toffee brownies, chocolate and pistachio pave, or crostini of walnuts with chevre.
Best served at a temperature between 12 and 14°C.
Picking the grapes by hand at the optimum time, then destemming, crushing and converting into wine through a process of careful maceration to extract their colour, tannins and aromas, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation.
This takes place in vats at a temperature between 28-30°C until it reaches the right degree of sweetness. Introducing grape brandy to create the final fortified wine.
A wine of high quality, made by blending wines of different harvests to achieve the array of sensory qualities that are typical of these aged tawny port wines. These wines have each matured in oak casks for varied periods of time, with the average age of all the wines in the blend defining the age on the label. The resulting blend expresses the characteristics given by the ageing in wood.
