Krohn Colheita 1976 (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
Wiese & Krohn was founded in 1865 by two Norwegians - Theodor Wiese and Dankert Krohn - shipping initially to Scandinavia and Germany. In the century and a half since its foundation, Krohn has built up an outstanding reputation. 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. Bottled to order. This Port was aged for four decades in cask.
An exquisite Colheita from Krohn - its amazing character, complexity and elegance explains why they are most recognised for this style of Port. This elegant single vintage tawny has a complex nose of orange peel, hazelnuts, cherries and spice. The palate is silky with a luscious sweetness, rich nutty and spicy characters, a touch of salinity, and tangy orange peel acidity. The finish is amazingly long with notes of toffee and caramel. Enjoy this on its own to savour all the nuances. (Each bottle is presented in an individual wooden gift box)
