Krohn Quinta Retiro Novo 2004 Vintage Port 75cl 20% ABV
Krohn Quinta Retiro Novo 2004 Vintage Port
This single Quinta Port comes from the excellent Quinta do Retiro Novo Estate. 2004 is regarded as a fine vintage for Single Quinta Ports. These Ports are typically made in good vintages, but not the finest ones, as grapes from the very best years are used for classic Vintage Port. Single Quinta Ports offer an approachable, earlier drinking Port to classic Vintage Ports, and at a more attractive price point.
The summer of 2004 was hot. This was followed by a wet September and some autumnal sun, pushing the sugar levels up before harvest. The grapes were trodden by foot before being aged for two years in wood and for several years in bottle before release.
This single Quinta port is full bodied and is loaded with black cherry and dark bramble fruits, grippy tannins and vibrant acidity. As an unfiltered Port, it will require decanting. Serve with mature blue cheese or dark chocolate. Drink now until 2030.
