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
A vivid orangey-brown colour. On the nose, it reveals aromas of ripe and honeyed fruit combined with fragrant notes of vanilla. A smooth and round palate, full of rich and enveloping flavours.
95 Points - Decanter
An elegant style that light-footedly dances across the tongue. Subtle layers of flavour play across the senses. Much more nuanced than many of its peers; a very interesting contrast. The fruit expression is well defined and joins caramel, toffee and white chocolate notes for a poised mouthful. Delicious! (Gold)
