Croft Quinta Roêda Vintage 1995
The Winter of 1994/5 was characterised by fairly heavy rainfall, but the temperatures were higher than normal and no cold weather was experienced. February was a dry month and the early Spring was unseasonably hot. Cold weather came at the end of April and there was severe frost damage in the higher regions of the Douro. Conditions however for flowering in May were near perfect.
The two outstanding features of the 1995 vintage were the exceptionally high sugar readings and the super abundant crop. Colour extraction was excellent and the ‘lagares’ took plenty of work.
Deep brown-black, with narrow brick brown rim. Ripe and mature fruit on the nose. Quite finely constituted and complex. Chocolate, butterscotch, prunes and cedar notes – quite exotic. Rounded, luscious, but with good tannic structure. Ripe, chocolatey, fudge flavours. Some jammy fruit, but only on the finish.
