Lot #3197. Wiese & Krohn Colheita Port 1982

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: Portugal, Douro, Porto.
Score: 92 WA.
"The 1982 Colheita Tawny Port was bottled with 155 grams per liter of residual sugar and a long cork in 2016. It comes in at 21.6% alcohol. Moderate in depth, this is long on charm. It has a very bright, fresh start, seeming elegant and balanced, but there is a bit of alcohol showing up front. The touch of molasses on the finish, the sugar and the generally lively demeanor make that a modest issue rather than a critical one. This is very good and very pleasing, but probably a step short of true distinction for what amounts to a 30+-year-old tawny. The price point is reasonable, though, for its age." Wine Advocate #227, Oct 2016
