Kopke's amazing stock of aged tawnies continues to surprise by its reserves. Now 50 years old, this smooth, mellifluous wine is opulent and delicious. It has the true aged tawny, old gold character, with dried fruits that have sublimated into a wine that is almost dry. It is an astonishing wine that is ready to drink now.
