1964 Krohn White Colheita

Post by AHB » 22:10 Fri 14 Nov 2014

Golden yellow colour with a gentle nose of VA and nutskins. Lovely entry, balanced but full of fresh flavours of bitter grapefruit and subtle sweetness. A lovely marzipan / elderflower aftertaste and a tremendous lingering finish with lots of sweet fig. Really lovely. Served on the recommendation of Beatriz Machado, Wine Director at the Yeatman. 93/100. Drunk 26-Sep-14. Decant time N/K.
