Award-winning Port from the outstanding 2003 vintage. Full structure and body, with intense red berry and spice aromas following through to the palate - layers of flavour include chocolate, tobacco and blackberries. Vintage ports are made from a single harvest. The wines are bottled 2 years after the harvest, and then spend many years maturing in the bottle. This 2003 vintage is still relatively young for a vintage port; it can already be enjoyed, for example with blue cheese, but will happily mature in the bottle for at least another five years.

Country Of Origin: Portugal
Wiese and Krohn was founded in 1865 by two young Norwegians, Theodor Wiese & Dankert Krohn. Edmundo Falcão Carneiro acquired the company in the 1930s and Wiese and Krohn was run by the second and third generations of the Falcão Carneiro family - brother and sister Jose and Iolanda - until 2013. 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. The Quinta do Retiro Novo estate in Sarzedinho, in the Rio Torto valley, is all A grade vineyard. Vinification takes place here, with some of the top wines still being trodden by foot. All the wines are matured in cellars at Villa Nova de Gaia. Krohn Port was acquired by the Fladgate Partnership (owners of Taylor, Croft and Fonseca) in 2013. Krohn’s stocks of Port reach over 5 million litres and are stored in six cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia and one cellar in the Douro Region. They have exceptional stocks of aged tawny Port and Colheita Port dating back to 1863. Vintage ports are made from a single harvest. The wines are bottled 2 years after the harvest, and then spend many years maturing in the bottle. This 2003 vintage is still relatively young for a vintage port; it can already be enjoyed, for example with blue cheese, but will happily mature in the bottle for at least another five years.
