Estate Notes

Croft's 1994 Vintage Port comes from one of the finest port vintages of the latter half of the 20th century and was universally declared; producing wines of wonderfully ripe fruit with superb ageing potential.

The house of Croft was founded over 300 years ago. Indeed 1588 is the earliest evidence of the company being involved in port shipments.

By 1827, Croft & Co. had become the fourth largest Port wine shipper. One hundred years later, they were occupying the number one position. The house of Croft enjoys a major reputation for its Vintage ports in particular and acquired the famed Quinta de Roeda in 1875.

Reviews

"The essence of grapes. Full-bodied and tannic, yet very classy and refined. It's got grip, but rather than smashing you over the head with structure, it seduces gently with its wonderful, well-toned muscles. Best Croft since '45." Wine Spectator
