Croft QDR Vintage Port

Deep inky purple with narrow magenta rim. The nose is redolent of potent and heady gumcistus, eucalyptus and Mediterranean hillside scents enveloping a soft luscious core of rich jammy raspberry fruit. Subtle and fleeting hints of cedar, woodsmoke and coffee provide an additional layer of multi-dimensional complexity. This is an archetypal Roêda nose with its exotic resiny fragrances and opulent fruit. The palate is characteristically plump and round but firmly supported by solid perfectly integrated tannins. The long finish is propelled by a vigorous burst of sumptuous fruit restrained by an attractive tannic grip.

Accolades
Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak, November 2010 – 93 Points
"Quite dense, rich and sweet with blackberry and plum fruit and nice spicy tannins. Sweet, lush, jammy fruit dominates. Sweet and approachable on opening, yet with a week open this puts on weight. A lovely Port.”
