Croft unveils a limited edition of a special wine to celebrate the 430 years of Croft’s foundation.
The special bottle resembles the traditional bottles used for years for Port with a celebration label and gift tube that use Jan Luyken’spainting from the Armada invasion to emphasise Croft’s origins back to 1588.
Deep ruby black colour with a narrow purple rim. The nose opens with a fine crisp fruitiness, black cherry, blackberry and cassis, and aromas of fresh plum. Delicate floral notes of rose petal and violets emerge to provide elegance and complexity.
The wine has the typical Croft roundness and smoothness offset by a fresh acidity and firm but well integrated tannins. The palate is crammed with intense berry fruit and finishes with luscious flavours of strawberry and cherry.
A superb reserve Port, displaying all the fine fruit character which is a hallmark of the Croft style
