Ruby Port

RUBY

Ruby Ports, like the LBV, have good colour and body, a fine aroma and taste. The LBV matures in cask for a period of four to six years and is then bottled.

Late Bottled Vintage

Late Bottled Vintage (LBV) Ports are single year Ports. They have a high quality level, with a good colour and body, a fine aroma and taste, but unlike Vintage they mature in cask for a period of four to six years and are then bottled. The result of this process is a Port which can be drunk earlier than a Vintage Port.

Krohn’s LBV Ports are neither fined nor filtered and may thus throw a sediment. We recommend to decant them before serving.

Late Bottled Vintage Ports are affordable, fruity wines you should drink after meal with cheese, pies and all types of melon and berries.

Tasting Notes

Profound, velvety, rich ruby colour. Lovely mature fruit nose; rich jam/compote aroma – notes of quince. Undertones of leather and spice. On the palate the wine is very smooth, very rich, rounded, plum. Fruit flavours of cherry, plum, prune, date – an attractive hint of spice. The wine has good complexity and intensity of flavour. Medium bodied – nicely weighted.

Serving Suggestions

Krohn LBV is the perfect finish to any meal. It does not need to be decanted and should be served in a generously proportioned wine glass so that its rich fruity nose can be enjoyed to the full. Excellent with fully flavoured cheeses, especially blue cheeses such as Stilton or Roquefort. It is also delicious with desserts made with chocolate or berry fruits.

Rio Torto Reserva Ruby

Rio Torto is our Reserva Ruby Port. It has a remarkable red colour, a fruity character and a full body.

Tasting Notes

Dark purple in colour this wine has a delicious nose of fresh dark berry flavours. Perfect elegance on the palate with flavours of blackcurrants, dark plums and cherries, with an enticing finish.

Serving Suggestions

Ruby port, with its firm tannins and concentrated fruitiness, is the style most suited for the classic port and cheese combination. It is particularly good with blue-veined and richly flavoured soft cheeses. It is also delicious with bitter chocolate.

Ambassadeur Ruby

Ambassadeur is the name of Krohn’s Ruby Port. It is a fruity wine with a nice red colour that should be consumed quite young in order to preserve its freshness.

A stylish fruity nose which is full of intense and concentrated blackcurrant and cherry aromas. Full bodied and firm, the palate is crammed with luscious black fruit flavours. The wine has good weight and structure with a fine finish.
