Tasting Notes

Krohn are famous for their elegant tawny Colheitas. This follow on to the vintage 2000 is similar in style and a great alternative to LBV. A Gold Medal winner at this year’s International Wine Challenge, the judges commented that it offered a “soft toffee nose with caramelised berry fruit and hints of dry figs on the palate”. Utterly scrumptious.

Producer details

Wiese & Krohn was founded in 1865 by two Norwegians - Theodor Wiese and Dankert Krohn. Long renowned for the quality of their sublime Colheitas (single vintage tawnies), they produce a remarkably complete range for a small house and each wine excels in its category. The Quinta do Retiro Novo estate in Sarzedinho, in the Rio Torto valley, is all A grade vineyard. Vinification takes place here, with some of the top wines still being trodden by foot. All the wines are matured in cellars at Villa Nova de Gaia.

In the vineyard

The traditional grape varieties are sourced from the Quinta do Retiro estate and neighbouring growers in the Rio Torto Valley. Here old vines are planted in schistous soils.

In the winery

Fermentation in open granite tanks called 'lagares', where the grapes are trodden by foot. Fermentation is interrupted by the addition of grape spirit to preserve a certain degree of natural sweetness. All ageing is done in 547 litre oak barrels (the traditional 'pipe') and larger casks. The Port spends at least 10 years maturing in wood, before being bottled, unfiltered

Food Recommendations

Serve with semi-soft cheeses, cured ham or a crème brulée.
