Kopke first began as a shipping company in 1638. It eventually became internationally recognised as the very first Port House in the industry. In 1781 they became a major producer of Port when they bought a farm in the Douro and began to focus their business entirely on port production. Since then, Kopke has won many gold medals and other numerous awards for their excellent ports, particularly those in the Tawny style.
The ports are immediately recognisable by the hand-stencilled labelling which has not changed in centuries. All the bottles are still hand stencilled in the traditional way to this day.
The Kopke 10 Year Old Tawny is delicious. There are predominant raisiny flavours alongside dried apricot, a little spice and you can really appreciate that it has aged in wood - those oaky flavours are all there.
Would pair very well with soft cheese and walnuts or of course with a myriad of deserts such as chocolate mousse, chocolate cake or sticky toffee pudding.
