THE GREAT PORT REVIVAL
No longer considered old-fashioned, fortified wines like our rich Kopke Colheita port are enjoying a renaissance
When was the last time you heard someone order a port and lemonade who wasn’t your gran? Exactly. Over the past few decades, the port industry has seen its customer base shrink, with enriched wines only really trotted out with a cheese course. But that’s about to change. There’s a lot to enjoy about a beautifully smooth port, and now a new generation of convivialists are being drawn to the traditional tipple. If you fancy a taste of the action, our Kopke from the world’s oldest port house is a great starting point. Made on a family-owned vineyard in Portugal’s port heartland, this ruby-hued digestif tastes like mulberries, candied peel and honey-roasted almonds. Try it with everything from chocolate to Christmas pudding and crème brûlée – or enjoy a glass on its own.
