Krohn Reserve Ruby
This product is currently sold out.
This concentrated and classy Reserva Port is 'premium Ruby' in style. It has a smaller production, is made from a more premium selection of grapes, and spends an additional year or more ageing.
Grapes are sourced from Krohn's Quinta do Retiro Novo estate and neighbouring vineyards in the Rio Torto valley near Pinhao. 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.
Deep red colour; opulent, rich plummy fruit with surprising depth of flavour, expressing pure, youthful and high quality fruit.
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.
Grapes: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Barroca
