Description

Krohn Late Bottled Vintage Port (or LBV) is a style of Port which bridges the gap between the younger, fruitier Ruby Ports and the more complex, vintage Ports which require many years ageing.

Wiese and Krohn, to give it 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.

Late Bottled Vintage Port must be aged for between 4 and 6 years in oak barrels, or vats, prior to release. This wine is ready to drink and does not require decanting. The bottle should be kept upright, protected from light and at a cool and constant temperature. The wine is a blend of typical Douro Port grapes including Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa and Tinta Barroca.

The particular qualities of this wine allow it to be enjoyed over an extended period of time once opened, without losing its freshness and vibrancy. Optimum drinking time after opening the bottle is within two months.
