Deep gold to burnt orange in colour, with a complex bouquet of crème brulee, nougat and caramelised almonds. The palate is reminiscent of course dark marmalade, crystallised ginger, nuts and lemon zest. Beautifully developed with balanced acidity.
Krohn are a small family-owned Port house run by brother and sister Jose and Iolanda Carneiro. 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.
These are probably the most appreciated Ports from this House. Colheita Ports are single year Ports of a high quality level which have to be matured in wood for at least seven years. Normally they are bottled just before they leave the cellars, which may happen much later than the 7th year of age. For this reason, Colheita Ports generally remain in wood for long or even very long periods, and acquire with time the characteristic mahogany colour of the old Tawnies, a fine and complex bouquet, a nutty character and a silky texture.
