Food Recommendations
 

Deep ruby colour with upfront aromas of black plums, spice and dried herbs, firm and evident tannins and a rich, long finish. The generous plummy characters, freshness and pure berry fruit characterise Krohn LBV.

Wiese & Krohn was founded in 1865 by two Norwegians - Theodor Wiese and Dankert Krohn. 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.

Port produced from a single year.

Aged for 4 to 6 years in cask before bottling.

Try this LBV with cheese (Stilton, Gorgonzola), chestnuts, cashews or hazelnuts. Also good with desserts such as fruit tarts, pies and cakes. If you wish to incorporate into a meal then match with a Steak au Poivre.
