Overview of the Wine
In 1638, Kopke's path as a winegrower is entwined with the history of its location. The Douro was destined to become the chosen stage for this marriage between the will of man and nature took place. Quinta de São Luiz was acquired in 1922 and has since become the place where all Kopke’s DOC Douro wines are produced. The great connoisseurs of Douro wines have always recognised this property as one of the most important in the region, for the quality of its soil and vines and for its cultural traditions.
For many years, one of these traditions was to paint the Quinta’s stone walls white once a year. These white walls are pieces of history that are cherished to this day and underline the Douro landscape in a unique way.
In the centuries to come, Kopke will endeavour to honour its legacy, that was built with passion throughout generations.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Golden-brown colour, with reddish highlights. On the nose, it shows aromas of dried fruit and spice, with subtle hints of vanilla and jammed ripe fruit. It is refined and sophisticated on the palate, revealing good body and perfect balance between tannins and acidity. A long and appealing finish.
Slightly refreshed, expresses all the finesse and sophistication when combined with caramel desserts, dried fruits and spices, like caramel fondant with apple and ginger jelly, tatin tart, burnt cream and Cheeses of minimum intensity. Despite the age, the freshness remains. Extraordinary marriage with a refreshing tangerine parfait. The multiplicity of possible harmonies is amazing, having the consumer the pleasure to go in search of new flavours.
