Tasting Notes

Deep red colour; opulent, rich plummy fruit with surprising depth of flavour, expressing pure, youthful and high quality fruit

Producer details

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. Since 2013 Krohn has been part of the Fladgate Partnership - alongside Taylor's, Fonseca and Croft.

In the vineyard

Grapes are sourced from Krohn's Quinta do Retiro Novo estate and neighbouring vineyards in the Rio Torto valley near Pinhao.

In the winery

Fermentation is in temperature controlled stainless steel vats, which is interrupted by the addition of grape spirit to preserve a certain degree of natural sweetness. The Port is aged for 2 years in 547 litre oak barrels (the traditional 'pipe') and large vats. Bottled unfiltered.

Food Recommendations

This port was bottled unfiltered so may form a fine sediment. Best served after a meal with mature hard cheeses or cakes made from almonds, chestnuts, chocolate or red fruits.

In the press

NV: "With fresh acidity to balance the cherries and primary red fruit, this is bright, ripe and grippy, with a smattering of nuts on both nose and palate" Sommelier Wine Awards 2014, Judges Comments
