Krohn Vintage Port 2016
17 pts Revista de Vinhos - Deep ruby color with narrow purple maple. A nose of wonderfully pure and vibrant red berries with fresh aromas of blackberry, raspberry, cherry and vivid plum and apricot notes. Emerging behind this curtain of fresh fruit are elegant aromas of black pepper and nutmeg, mocha notes and aromas of cedar wood and balsamic herbs. In contrast, the palate is voluptuous, with dense tannins that fill the mouth, providing body and firmness and a thick juice of black berries that flows in a prolonged end. Although the first impression is of an ethereal purity, wine develops an intricate complexity in the glass displaying the powerful but beautifully integrated tannins that are the hallmark of this year.

Winemaking:
Vintage Ports come from a single harvest and have exceptional organoleptic characteristics, showing a dark red colour, a great structure and intense fruity aromas and flavours. They are bottled two years after the harvest and in most cases spend many years maturing in the bottle. Through this ageing process Vintage Ports are kept away from the influence of the atmosphere, which makes them loose their colour very slowly and retain their typical fruitness. In order to maintain richness and power they are neither fined nor filtered, therefore throwing a large amount of sediment as they mature.

Grape Varieties:
Old Vines

Tasting Notes:
Deep ruby color with narrow purple maple. A nose of wonderfully pure and vibrant red berries with fresh aromas of blackberry, raspberry, cherry and vivid plum and apricot notes. Emerging behind this curtain of fresh fruit are elegant aromas of black pepper and nutmeg, mocha notes and aromas of cedar wood and balsamic herbs. In contrast, the palate is voluptuous, with dense tannins that fill the mouth, providing body and firmness and a thick juice of black berries that flows in a prolonged end. Although the first impression is of an ethereal purity, wine develops an intricate complexity in the glass displaying the powerful but beautifully integrated tannins that are the hallmark of this year.

Store and Serve Advices:
It should be decanted before being served. Once opened, a Vintage bottle should be drunk the same day to keep the exceptional quality untouched.

Food Pairing:
Vintage Ports are after meal drinks. Take them with cheese like Stilton or Gorgonzola. But you can also incorporate them into a meal, combining for instance a Steak au Poivre with a young Vintage.
