A blend of several indigenous varieties including Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa and Tinta Roriz. Grapes are hand-harvested and all premium Ports are still trodden by foot. After fortification Colheita Ports are aged in small casks for a minimum of 7 years (600 litre), and bottled to order. The 1999 vintage experienced a wet winter followed by a dry spring and summer. High rainfall before the beginning of the harvest increased the yield, and although quality in some areas was uneven, Krohn have produced a very attractive Colheita.

Tasting notes

Brick red in colour with an appealing nose of spice, dates, caramel and nutty characters. The palate has amazing depth with layers of rich dried fruit and candied peel backed by an appealing palate weight, black fruit acidity and tremendous length.
