From: Porto, Portugal
Tasting Notes: Lágrima (teardrop) is a youthful, non-oxidative expression of white port; to make it, multiple vintages that have each aged for at least three years are blended together. Citrus plays with stone fruit, creating the perfect pair for a white port & tonic! Don’t forget to add a squeeze of lime in a white port and tonic and let the good times roll.
About. Kopke existed even before there was a Demarcated Region of the Douro. Established in 1638, the oldest Port wine house built an impeccable reputation based on the highest quality. A leader in the production of Port Tawny Colheita wines, including white port, Kopke has a remarkable range of special category Ports, also producing excellent DOC Douro wines.
Viticulture: The rows of vines are traditionally planted across the slope in horizontal terraces. More recently, vines have been planted up the slope (called “vinha ao alto”, meaning vertically planted).
Vinification: Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into wine through a process of careful maceration, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation. This takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature (between 16-18°C) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. Made by blending wines of different harvests that have maturated in stainless steel and wood for a minimum of 3 years, the result is a rich and aromatic wine, with the perfect level of sweetness.
