Deep in colour with opulent, rich, fruit-sodden depth, this wine is made from grapes grown in the A grade vineyards at Krohn's Quinta do Retiro Novo estate and the pedigree shouts out loud. This port spends 2 years in traditional port "pipes" (547 little casks) before being bottled. It is bottled unfiltered to maintain its natural exuberance and authority. It's packed with plummy fruit and has a wonderful depth of flavour.
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
