2010 Krohn Colheita, bottled 2022, Douro 20.0%

Port produced from a single year. The traditional grape varieties (including Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Barroca and Tinto Cão) are sourced from the Quinta do Retiro estate and neighbouring growers in the Rio Torto Valley. Here old vines are planted in schistous soils. Fermentation in open granite tanks called 'lagares', where the grapes are trodden by foot. Fermentation is interrupted by the addition of grape spirit to preserve a certain degree of natural sweetness. All ageing is done in 547 litre oak barrels (the traditional 'pipe') and larger casks. This Tawny Port was bottled in 2022 and so has therefore spent 12 years in cask.  It has complex aromas of ripe red fruits, damson jam, raisins and toasted nuts. Smooth and rounded on the palate, with notes of caramel balanced by fresh acidity to give great length.  A real star!

Krohn are famous for their elegant tawny Colheitas. Rich dried fruit and fig characters on the complex palate with notes of spice and balancing, fresh acidity.
