1900 Krohn Colheita

Post by AHB » 21:42 Thu 05 Jan 2017

Bottled 1988. Deep brown in colour, almost the colour of tar and just as opaque! Some soft toffee and black treacle on the nose but this port only comes to life when you take a sip. This is poised and powerful, full of rich and slightly dirty pineapple and toffee apple. Great acidity provides the perfect balance and keeps the palate fresh - intense and yet so "spot on" if slightly rustic. Immense aftertaste and a finish that combines sweet and slightly gritty dates with the bitter-sweetness of burnt sugar and a hint of hot rubber bands. What an amazing wine. Served blind, this was guessed to be the 1906 Quinta do Mourao colheita. 97/100. Drunk 30-Nov-16. Decanted 1 day.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
