Krohn Colheita 1999 Vintage Tawny Port in Wooden Box 75cl
Krohn is renowned for the quality of its Colheitas - and the 1999 explains why. An incredibly rich and complex Port that deserves to be savoured.
A blend of several indigenous varieties including Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa and Tinta Roriz. Grapes are hand-harvested and trodden by foot. After fortification, Krohn's Colheita Ports are aged in small 600L casks for a minimum of 7 years.. The 1999 vintage experienced a wet winter followed by a dry spring and summer. High rainfall before the beginning of the harvest increased the yield, and although quality in some areas was uneven, Krohn have produced a very attractive Colheita.
Brick red in colour with an appealing nose of spice, dates, caramel and nutty characters. The palate has amazing depth with layers of rich dried fruit and candied peel backed by an appealing palate weight, black fruit acidity and tremendous length.
Pairs well with soft cheeses such as Camembert and Brie.
