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.
Figs, black plums and prunes with nutty aromas and a touch or earthiness and pepper. This is a rich port with a lot of ripe and concentrated dark fruits and smooth tannins. DWM, November 2017
“The 2003 Croft Vintage Port reveals an opaque, black-colored core with notes of dark ruby on the rim. Its gorgeously creamy, profound nose displays sweet dark cherries, black plums, pepper, raisin jam, and blueberries. Thick, satin-textured, and immensely rich, this opulent yet elegant wine is engagingly warm, concentrated, and harmonious. Copious quantities of plums, black cherries, jammy blackberries and spices are found throughout its personality as well as in its prolonged, spirit-tinged, finish. Projected maturity: 2020-2045” – 93pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, October 2005
