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.
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:
Aged for 24 months in oak casks and then in bottles for several years.
