Aged for 24 months in oak casks and then in bottles for about a decade until it reaches maturity.
Port Wine from a single harvest or of undeclared or “non-classical years”, made from high quality vineyards of Fonsecas farms.
These wines mature in Fonsecas cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia and are only sold a decade after the harvest, when they reach maturity.
Fresh and intoxicating blackberry aromas, enhanced by a wonderfully aromatic scented quality.
Huge depth and structure in this very finely tuned Port Wine.
All is in harmony and perfectly balanced. Dark berry fruit flavours marry deliciously with the tannins, leaving the palate wishing for more.
A very fine Port wine.
The 2003/2004 winter was very dry, with only 1/3 of rainfall recorded in the previous winter.
Lack of water, during the early growing season, significantly reduced the risk of disease.
In July, the biggest concern fell on the possibility of vineyards not having the capacity to sufficiently ripen the grapes, due to the drastic water shortage.
The vintage stood out by perfect weather conditions throughout the period.
The young Ports show good structure with very fresh wild berries aroma, the result of a maturation period relatively cooler than normal.
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.Ageing process:
