Croft 2003 Vintage Port
This Port is fragrant and possesses wild black fruit aroma and an exotic touch.
The aroma burst from the glass: blackberry, blueberry, violets, cassis and morning dew, all with a fantastic setting.
It is full-bodied, magnificent and majestic on the mouth, with a better definition and approach than ancient Port wine. Blackberry and blueberry flavours provide a mineral sense that crosses at the finish, with an imperceptible alcohol.
This is a good choice for a Vintage Port and to savour pleasurably on several occasions.
Aged for 24 months in oak casks and then in bottles for several years.
Croft Vintage Port 2003
Viticulture Year and Harvest Notes:
The winter before the 2003 harvest was very wet.
Flowering occurred in a clean, warm weather in late May, with one of the best weather conditions in living memory.
The first two weeks of August had the intense summer heat that often precedes a great Vintage Port.
The second half of August was cooler and there were two days of rain.
The harvest in September was hot and dry and the yields were balanced for all noble grape varieties, ensuring balanced and complex wines.
Oenologist reports stressed the very intense colour and tannins abundance released by the grapes skins during fermentation, as well as the powerful fruitiness of youthful wines.
This is a Vintage Port for early consumption, a wine full of blackberry aromas and a floral touch; a second, very intense Fonseca's wine. A good alternative that you will wish to find out for yourself. Bottled in 2000
