The harvest from which resulted the Croft Vintage Quinta da Roeda 2008, benefited from warm days combined with cold nights, allowing the perfect ripening of the grapes, as well as a perfect fermentation. Purple and magenta colour and robust fragrances of rockrose, eucalyptus and typical aromas of Mediterranean slopes, evolving naturally and progressively to a smooth aroma of raspberry jam. Dense, sweet and lush is how we can describe this exceptional Croft Port. Take home this lovely Port Wine bottle of 37,5 cl and enjoy it in a relaxing moment or share it with a special someone.
Croft Vintage Quinta da Roeda 2008 has exotic aromas. On the palate it is possible to feel the richness of fresh fruit and firm and solid tannins. The aftertaste is long and bold. Prizes and awards: Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak, November 2010 and Test Panel, Wine Magazine, 18/20, January 2011.
Croft 2009 Vintage Port
This Vintage Port was created in 2009, which will be remembered as a year of low yields, due, in part, to the small amount of fruit and the effects of a very dry ripening season.
The ripening season started with relatively cold weather that remained so until July.
However, August was intensely hot.
An early harvest granted wines a good acid balance and avoided over-ripening.
Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage 1999 is a limited edition Port Wine. Only 2000 boxes were bottled to be saled. These 2000 bottles represent only 8% of the Quinta production in the year of 1999, presenting itself as a high quality Vintage. To add even more emphasis to this Vintage, it was created an edition of 4, 5Lt (6 bottles)..
