Produced from traditional Douro varieties grown at an altitude of up to 600m. Hand-picked at optimum ripeness, fermented in traditional granite troughs known as ‘lagares’ at 28-30°C to produce a wine, which is then fortified with the addition of ‘aguardente’ (brandy). The final wine is made up of a finely-tuned blend of different harvests, each matured in oak for varied periods of time. It is the average age of these wines that define the overall age of the blend – in this instance, 50 years.

With 140g residual sugar and 20% abv, the 50 Year Old is a beautifully balanced, aged Tawny from Kopke winemaker, Carlos Aves. Pronounced intensity of dried fruits such as fig and prune, together with walnut notes, cut through with a beautiful seam of fresh lemon drizzle acidity, perfectly balancing the residual sugar. Further complexity from time spent in barrel, all concluding on a lingering, evolving finish.
