Deep ruby colour with upfront aromas of black plums, spice and dried herbs, firm and evident tannins and a rich, long finish. The generous plummy characters, freshness and pure berry fruit characterise Krohn LBV.
The 2015 Late Bottled Vintage Port is a commemorative edition, bottled in the year which marks Graham’s bicentenary (1820-2020).
This LBV is produced from grapes sourced from four of Graham’s vineyards, each with Vintage quality and style. The wine brims with bright aromas of blackberries and liquorice, with background notes of rock rose and mint that are typical of Touriga Franca, a variety that excelled in 2015. Late Bottled Vintage Port spends twice as long in wood as Vintage Port so it is more accessible at an early age and is released ready to drink.
Whereas most White Ports are made up of a mixed field blend of white grape varieties, Blend Nº5 consists primarily of two Portuguese grape varieties, the fresh Malvasia Fina and the aromatic Moscatel Galego. These give the blend a fruity flavor profile on the palate with the perfect balance of dryness that mixes exquisitely with tonic.
