A classic Krohn Colheita, smooth, complex and deliciously nutty - and a double Gold medal winner to boot!

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. Rich dried fruit and fig characters on the complex palate with notes of spice and balancing, fresh acidity.

A very wet winter was followed by good flowering conditions in May. Hot weather in June led into a variable July and August with significant rain - but by the end of August the weather had become dry and sunny, producing a ripe and healthy crop. 

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. Since 2013 Krohn has been part of the Fladgate Partnership - alongside Taylor's, Fonseca and Croft. 

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. 

Fermentation takes place in closed fermentation tanks in Quinta do Retiro Novo. 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, at Krohn's cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. The Port spends at least 10 years maturing in wood, before being bottled, unfiltered, to order. 

Serve with semi-soft cheeses, crème brulée or an almond tart!
