Krohn are a small family-owned Port house run by brother and sister Jose and Iolanda Carneiro. 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. All the wines are matured in cellars at Villa Nova de Gaia.
A beautiful deep ruby colour, this Late Bottled Vintage Port has wonderful aromas of plums, dried herbs and spices. There are some lovely nutty and mocha notes in the mouth and a long silky finish.
The grapes (still trodden by foot) are fermented before being aged in large barrels for around five years before being bottled
