10 Year Old Tawny

10 YEAR OLD TAWNY

The 10 Year Old Ports are old Tawnies with a great complexity and the typical aromas and flavours of wood aged Ports, with lots of nuts and caramel. Krohn 10 Year Old is made from selected red Ports grown in the best vineyards of the Douro Valley.

The wine ages in small oak casks, generally holding about 630 litres, where there is a relatively small volume of wine compared to the surface area of the vessel, so contact with the wood is proportionately greater. As it matures in cask, Tawny Port gradually loses the deep red ‘ruby’ colour of youth and takes on the seductive amber hue known as ‘tawny’. At the same time the wine becomes progressively smoother and mellower, its aromas gaining in richness and complexity.

Serving

The wine benefits from being served slightly chilled, between 12ºC to 16ºC. The particular qualities of this wine allow it to be enjoyed over an extended period of time once opened, without losing its freshness and vibrancy. Optimum drinking time after opening the bottle is within two to three months.

Storage

This wine is ready to drink and does not require decanting. The bottle should be kept upright, protected from light and at a cool and constant temperature.

Tasting Notes

A harmonious and elegant, balanced wine that combines the freshness of the ripe fruit with the rich aromas of raisins, dates and jam.

Pairing Suggestions

The Krohn 10 Year Old Tawny is a delicious dessert wine, and harmonizes particularly well with flavours of almonds, wild berries or dark chocolate. You can also pair it with rich, blue veined cheeses. It is excellent at the end of the meal, as a culminating moment of a pleasant evening, served alone or with walnuts or toasted almonds.
