1968 Krohn Colheita Vintage
Colheita Ports are single year Ports of a high quality level which have to be matured in wood for at least seven years. Normally they are bottled just before they leave our cellars, which may happen much later than the 7th year of age. For this reason, our Colheita Ports generally remain in wood for long or even very long periods, and acquire with time the characteristic mahogany colour of the old Tawnies, a fine and complex bouquet, a nutty character and a silky texture.
The 1968 growing season
Dry and warm winter and then some rain in early Spring. June was exceptionally hot, and the dryness affected many vineyards in the Douro Region. Harvest started by the end of September, under sunny days and cool nights, which was perfect for the grapes and the vinification.
Perfect for anyone born in 1968 for a 50th Birthday Gift.
