Product Description

The heady scents and opulent ripe fruit which define the Croft Vintage Port style are supported by a mesh of taut, muscular tannins.

Wine Spectator: This deep purple-black wine has complex, seductive aromas with the archetypal Croft opulence along with impressive depth, background and aromatic reserves. Rich, powerful fruitiness is the backdrop for heady scents of blossom and rock rose. Luscious, ripe berry flavors are accompanied by a velvety texture underpinned by taut, muscular, perfectly-integrated tannins, which provide stamina, an attractive firmness, and vigor to the finish. More virile and structured than some recent Croft Vintage Ports, 2011 displays all the rich, ripe fruitiness and exotically scented character associated with the Croft house style.

Robert Parker: 
"The 2011 Croft is initially taciturn on the nose, even after allowing it 20 minutes in my glass. A light swirling immediately awakens the aromatics to offer blackberry, Seville orange marmalade, blueberries and dried fig – complex and quite compelling. There is real mineralite within this bouquet that, returning after 30 minutes, offers alluring ocean spray scents rolling in off the ocean. The palate is medium-bodied with a velvety-smooth opening that belies the fine, structured tannins underneath. It clams up a little towards the finish, shuts the lid tight and consequently there is the sensation of less persistency here compared to the Taylor's or Fonseca. But Croft has a knack of filling out with bottle age and becomes both gentle and generous with the passing years.
Range: 92-95"
