Deep dark-purple colour with a vibrant and intense ruby rim. Aromas of ripe wild berries on the nose, combined with notes of violet, black pepper and hints of eucalyptus leaf. In the mouth the rm tannins stand out, together with a vibrant and crisp acidity.

All aromas are perfectly combined, with aftertaste favours of raspberry, blackberry and apricot, ending in a long and enduring finish, so characteristic of Kopke. Winemaker Desrcription.

 


Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted 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 (lagares) at a controlled temperature (between 28-30°C) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. A wine of high quality, made from one single harvest, bottled 4 to 6 years after harvest.
