This single Quinta Port is produced from the excellent Quinta do Retiro Novo property, and offers a fantastic insight into the quality and style of Krohn's estate. Single Quinta Ports are typically made in good vintages, 'though not the best, as grapes from the very best years are typically used for a house's 'classic' Vintage Port instead. Single Quintas offer a more approachable, earlier drinking style to classic Vintage Ports, at a more attractive price point.
The winter and spring of 2005 were dry so flowering was good. The summer that followed was hot so some vines suffered from the drought, but showers in September allowed the grapes to mature and cool nights ensured some balancing acidity.
This single Quinta port is full-bodied and loaded with black cherry and dark bramble fruits, grippy tannins and vibrant acidity. A powerful and full-bodied Port.
