Krohn Quinta do Retiro Novo 2005

2005

In a Nutshell

Dark, concentrated single Quinta Port.

Tasting Notes

Full-bodied and loaded with fruit, this single Quinta port has the concentration and depth of the hot 2005 vintage with dark black cherry flavours and a firm finish.

Production Notes

During vinification, great importance is given to both modern technology balanced by traditional wine making methods. So old lagares (open granite tanks about 75 cm high) are still used to make the best Ports with traditional foot treading of the grapes without any mechanical crushing. Modern stainless steel lagares are also used where sophisticated robots simulate the human treading of the grapes.

Producer - Wiese and Krohn
