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.

Vibrant ruby colour turning to brick on the rim. Intense, rich, jammy damson and strawberry fruit aromas. Good depth and complexity on the nose, with additional notes of spice and leather. Finely structured palate with great balance. Strong jammy, chocolate flavours - hint of eucalyptus. Lovely length on the finish.

Limited stock.
