Krohn Ambassador Ruby
Rich and full Ruby Port, with smooth, soft finish.Tasting Note
Krohn's 'entry level' is in a different category to most Ruby Ports - mature and
versatile with a deep red colour and a concentration of fresh, plummy fruit aromas
plus hints of spice. The palate has plenty of lively cherry and curranty black fruit -
rich and full with a soft finish.
Wiese & Krohn was founded in 1865 by two Norwegians - Theodor Wiese and Dankert Krohn - shipping initially
to Scandinavia and Germany. In the century and a half since its foundation, Krohn has built up an outstanding
reputation.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. Much of the secret lies in
the high quality of their vineyards - the magical combination of terroir, locality, aspect, incline and low-yielding
vines. Their Quinta do Retiro Novo estate in Sarzedinho, in the Rio Torto valley (where vinification takes place),
is all A grade vineyard. Indeed Krohn only work with grapes from A-graded vineyards across all of their ports, and their top wines are still trodden by foot.
In The Winery
Traditional grape varieties are sourced from Krohn's
own vineyards, and supplemented by fruit from
neighbouring farms working in partnership with
Krohn. Here old vines are planted in schistous soils.
Fermentation in temperature controlled stainless
steel vats, which is interrupted by the addition of
grape spirit to preserve a certain degree of natural
sweetness. This wine is a blend of different grapes,
vineyards and vintages.
