Krohn Porto Ambassador Ruby Port

Krohn Porto Ambassador Ruby Port

Region
Douro, Portugal
Producer:
Wiese & Krohn
Grapes:
Touriga Nacional, Touriga Fransesca
Wine Description:

Superb value to be had from the Carneiro family. A blend of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Fransesca. Plummy fruit and soft tannins.

Tasting Note:

Krohn's 'entry level' is in a different category to most Ruby Ports - mature and versatile with a deep red colour and a concentration of fresh, plummy fruit aromas plus hints of spice. The palate has plenty of lively cherry and curranty black fruit - rich and full with a soft finish.

Food Suggestion:

Serve after a meal as a digestif with hard cheeses, chestnuts, cashews and hazelnuts. Works as a perfect accompaniment to berries, summer pudding and chocolate too!

Producer Description

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. Much of the secret lies in the high quality of their vineyards - the magical combination of terroir, locality, aspect, incline and low-yielding vines. Their Quinta do Retiro Novo estate in Sarzedinho, in the Rio Torto valley (where vinification takes place), is all A grade vineyard. Indeed Krohn only work with grapes from A-graded vineyards across all of their ports, and their top wines are still trodden by foot. Since 2013 Krohn has been part of the Fladgate Partnership - alongside Taylor's, Fonseca and Croft.
