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. Since 2013 Krohn has been part of the Fladgate Partnership - alongside Taylor's, Fonseca and Croft.

Wiese and Krohn Colheita 1982
The wine is very clear, bright, rusty and tawny appearance. A Complex nose of beeswax, quince and smoke. The palate hits with the impression of apricots, peaches, dried fruits and fig before turning to a nutty, toffee finish with lingering coffee notes. Very clean and fresh. Also, the citrus in the finish expertly tempers the rich sweetness leaving an impeccably balanced and drinkable wine.
