Krohn Colheita 1998

1998

In a Nutshell

Gentle, mature and soft raisin fruit with great length.

Tasting Notes

Nutty aromas, with notes of toffee and apple. The beautifully smooth and mellow palate has ripe fruit - characters of fig and raisin -along with rich and ripe spicy and nutty flavours. Complex and well-balanced, with great length.

Production Notes

Vinified in closed fermentation tanks, fermentation stopped with the addition of grape brandy in order to retain a level of natural sweetness (101g/l). Maturation is in oak vats in the Wiese & Krohn cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia, on the Atlantic coast. Wines are bottled without fining and to order, maximising the time spent in barrel.

Producer - Wiese and Krohn

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

Krohn are best known for their Colheita Ports; wines of a single vintage given extra long ageing in cask. This has a fragrant nose of leaf tea and lovely oxidised, nutty notes leading on to a really delicate palate. The spirit is softly subdued, allowing spices and loads of fruit to come through: raisins and glacé cherries, but plenty of warming, nutty richness. 93 points
