Description

Krohn 2009 Vintage Port presented in 75cl bottle. 2009 was declared by Krohn as a classic vintage – although yields were low, quality was good. The result is a Port with stewed prune and cherry fruit and excellent length.

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.

The grapes for Krohn’s Vintage Ports are 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. The Port was then aged in ‘pipes’ and larger casks. This is a typical Douro field blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa and Tinta Barroca.

Krohn 2009 Vintage Port will require decanting.

Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
