    Product description

    Founded in 1588, Croft is the oldest Port shippers still active today and is mainly renowned for its Vintage Ports, including famous Quinta da Roêda.

    Full and robust, this is a classic Croft style with sweet berry aromas. After many years slowly maturing in our cellars, it is now ready and drinking extremely well. – DWM, February 2016

    “Croft never seems to get much publicity since the wines, while always very good, sometimes even excellent, never quite reach the superb level of the top houses in Oporto. However, Croft seems to do surprisingly well, often rivaling the top ports, in the less glamorous vintages such as 1975 and 1966. The 1985 will be an early-developing port. It shows aromas that border on overripeness and offers scents of plums and black cherries. Full-bodied, rich yet lush and soft, this husky wine had loads of concentration, a very sweet long finish and light tannins.” 87pts Robert Parker, RobertParker.com, January 1989
