Estate Notes

Croft's 2000 Vintage Port comes from an excellent Port vintage, which produced lovely sweet, rich, concentrated Port.

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

"It has a warm, inviting bouquet with maraschino cherry, raisin, burning embers in a winter fire and Tiptree strawberry jam. The palate has a mellow entry, a little more forward and generous than I anticipated a touch of Indian spice on the entry that fans out nicely across the mouth, supple and slightly honeyed towards the long finish. Lovely." eRobertParker.com
