Description

The opulence and simplicity of a Croft Vintage Port

The producer

Founded in 1588, Croft is one of the oldest and most prestigious Port Houses. Croft has earned its reputation due to its outstanding Tawny and Vintage Ports as well as its diverse range of Old Port. For over 400 years, this estate has passed down both excellent craftmanship and style from generation to generation. A pioneer at heart, the Croft House has also established itself due to its various innovative and bold creations.

The vineyard

Quinta da Roeda Vintage Port comes from the Quinta da Roêda: a large expanse of terraced vineyards on the north bank of the Douro River in Portugal. The estate's very old vines are rooted on slopes above the village of Pinhão.

The wine

Presented as a Classic Vintage, the 2016 Croft Vintage Port is one of the historic Port trading house’s iconic products.

The vintage

Despite a hot summer, the temperatures in 2016 enabled the grapes to reach both optimal and even maturity, resulting in berries that were perfectly healthy and presented a great aromatic expression. The musts suggesting a great finesse with regards to the tannins.

The blend

Port Blend.

The tasting

Nose

The aromatic palette reveals the richness of delicious, jammy strawberry and blackcurrant notes, while aeration reveals grassy notes reminding us of the signature fragrance of Quinta da Roêda’s old vines.

Palate

Elegantly classic in style, Croft Vintage Port 2016 is defined by its opulent aromatic expression, exuding the perfect balance of pure fruit. Bursting with flavour, the palate opens with notes of red berries, evolving towards a tannic framework whose fine, tightly packed grains provide structure and volume. A great Vintage Port.
