Krohn Vintage 2003 Port 75cl 20.5% ABV
Krohn Vintage 2003 Port
An award winning Port from the outstanding 2003 vintage. Vintage ports are made from a single harvest. Fermentation takes place in open granite tanks called lagares, where the grapes are trodden by foot. The wine is then aged for around two years in large oak barrels and then bottled and aged for several more years before release.
Wet weather in the winter and spring of 2003 was followed by a very hot August. The grapes showed high concentration and sweetness, but relatively low acidity, resulting in an award winning Port, rich, powerful and complex.
A full bodied Port, with aromas of intense red berries, sweet spices, liquorice and vanilla. The palate has great structure and concentration, with rich, ripe plum and cherry flavours, a hint of spice and firm tannins. Perfect paired with blue and mature cheese and nuts.
