WIESE & KROHN COLHEITA 1999
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.
Brick red in colour with a spicy nose of dates and caramel. The palate has rich dried fruit and candied peel characters, and tremendous length. Colheitas pair well with soft cheeses such as Camembert and Brie.

Had not used KWM before, certainly would use them again, the product description was outstanding followed up by simple ordering and fantastic delivery service ahead of schedule!
And the Port, well that had a special meaning for us, it was superb on every level, packaging to taste...
