Description

Krohn 1983 Colheita Port is a single vintage Tawny Port. A Colheita Port must be made from grapes harvested from a single vintage and aged for at least 7 years in barrel prior to release.

Krohn or, Wiese and Krohn to give its full name, was founded in 1865 by two young Norwegians, Theodor Wiese & Dankert Krohn. Edmundo Falcão Carneiro acquired the company in the 1930s and Wiese and Krohn was run by the second and third generations of the Falcão Carneiro family until 2013. Krohn Port was acquired by the Fladgate Partnership (owners of Taylor, Croft and Fonseca) in 2013. Krohn’s stocks of Port reach over 5 million litres and are stored in six cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia and one cellar in the Douro Region. They have exceptional stocks of aged tawny Port and colheita Port dating back to 1863.

Grapes for the Krohn 1983 Colheita Port were sourced from old vine vineyards at Krohn’s famous Quinta do Retiro Novo estate in Sarzedinho in the Rio Torto Valley where all their vineyards are rated as “A grade”. Some grapes are also sourced from neighbouring growers in the Rio Torte. These are all old vine vineyards planted on schistous soils. The grapes are trodden by foot at the quinta in large granite “lagares” where the wine also undergoes fermentation. Fermentation is stopped with the addition of grape spirit when the desired level of sweetness is achieved. This fine tawny Port is aged in 547 litre oak vats (also traditionally known as a Port “pipe”) at the Wiese & Krohn cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia, on the Atlantic coast. Wines are bottled without fining and to order, maximising the time spent in barrel. It is a typical Port wine blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa and Tinta Roriz

This may throw a light sediment but, in general, Tawny Ports do not need decanting like a vintage Port.

Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Serve With

Can be served lightly chilled. A great match for pudding (bread pudding with raspberry sauce, or tea pudding with cinnamon and lemon sticks), tarts or cakes (made of almonds, chestnuts, chocolate, red fruits).

Tasting Notes

Krohn 1983 Colheita Port has a pale tawny brown at the core with pronounced olive highlights in a broad gold rim. The nose is dense, mellow and spicy, with rich aromas of treacle, raisin and dried fig, combining with black pepper, cigar box and woody notes of oak and cedar – yet retains a lifted quality. Round and silky on the palate, with an attractive crisp acidity, the wine finishes with a persistent nutty butterscotch flavour. Warming and seductive, this wine displays all the intricacy and opulence of many years of ageing in seasoned oak casks.
