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.
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.
