Every wine tells a story. Kopke’s Colheitas, however, tell a unique story. To taste a wine is to taste history and, in the case of this 1966 Colheita, it means remembering a remarkable event such as the launching of The Beatles’ 7th album, Revolver, which is considered by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame one of the Definitive 200 Albums. This same year saw the inauguration of the bridge over the Tagus that links Lisbon with Portugal’s south region, Ponte 25 de Abril.
An intense brown colour, with a brick-coloured rim that shows its longevity. On the nose, it shows appealing aromas of dried fruit and marked notes of smoke. Silky and delicate on the palate, with remarkable structure and elegance. The flavours of plum, dried fig and vanilla are well-balanced, giving the wine a unique and distinct style. A singularly persistent finish.
