Tasting Notes

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 1963, one of the great vintages for port, is good but unexciting.

Has great elegance and harmony, and should continue to improve for many years. Medium ruby-red, with very fresh plum aromas, medium-bodied, with very delicate fresh fruit flavors, lively acidity and a delicate finish.

Rich and raisiny. Light nose. More than a hint of those cough sweets - Fisherman’s Friend – about it. Fully mature
