Croft Vintage 2003 Port Wine (Single Bottle)

£128.80

Specification
Product CodeCRONNIWJ22
ConditionNew
Weight2Kg

£128.80 - An opaque core with bright ruby rim. The nose just explodes from the glass: blackberry, bilberry, violets, morning dew and cassis all with superb delineation. The palate is full-bodied, magnificent and regal, with better definition and focus than the millennial port. Blackberry, blueberry, that sense of minerality coming through towards the finish, seamless with unnoticeable alcohol. Great finesse on the finish. this is Croft returning to past glories. Outstanding.

Wine Making
VinyardWine MakerVinification
The character of Croft Vintage Ports is one of the most individual of all. Scented, exotic and opulent crammed with luscious fruit flavour, They develop great richness and complexity with age. Quinta da Roêda is at the heart of this distinctive house style. David Guimaraens
Vintage Ports are made exclusively from the grapes of one harvest. Bottled after two years in casks, it is in the bottle that the long, slow, ageing process transforms the young wine into a magnificent Vintage Port. A Croft Vintage is only declared in years of optimum quality. These demanding standards mean that a Croft Vintage might be declared perhaps only two or three times in a decade

Can be enjoyed by itself but it goes equally well with full cheeses and chocolate or red fruit deserts. A strong cigar can also be the ideal accompainment.
