Kopke is one of the oldest Port houses around dating back to 1638. They have an amazing selection of aged tawny ports that offer a glimplse of history through a glass. One strong memory for me for 1989 is that is the year the Berlin Wall came down. I spent most of my childhood in Germany and the photos from that moment captured the hope and happiness of the beginning days of reunification.
The winery describes the 1989 colheita as follows, "Intense amber-golden colour. It reveals a bouquet
of wonderful complexity and elegance, with dominant aromas of dried
fruit and vanilla and enveloping notes of toast. In the mouth, it is
dense and voluminous, yet smooth and delicate. It shows great complexity
and great balance. A long and impressive finish."
