Kopke Vinhas Velhas Tinto Limited Edition 2014 750ml
Kopke Vinhas Velhas 2014 is made from the old vineyard of Quinta de S. Luiz (Cima Corgo), with its 80-year-old vines. An exclusive edition of 2,426 numbered bottles, this wine presents aromas of wild berries, notes of violet and hints of menthol and fine spices. With firm tannins and surprising acidity, it is elegant, expressive and shows great ageing potential. Made only in years when the old vines produce grapes of exceptional quality, this Kopke Vinhas Velhas 2014 succeeds the 2010 edition.
"Quinta de S. Luiz, with 125 hectares is located in the Cima Corgo subregion, very close to Pinhão. The old vines of this farm have been chosen to give Kopke the top of the range.
