Croft Port

croft portCroft is one of the most distinguished of all Port houses. Founded in 1588, it is the oldest firm still active today as a Port wine producer.

The company is renowned above all for its Vintage Ports as well as for its range of wood aged reserves and tawnies, time-honoured styles refined by skill and experience passed down the generations.





In spite of its rich heritage and history spanning over four centuries, Croft has never been constrained by tradition. Today, as in the past, it maintains a pioneering spirit, continuing to create innovative new styles such as Croft Pink, the first ever rosé Port.



Behind every great wine producer is a great vineyard. The cornerstone of Croft’s distinctive house style is the famous Quinta da Roêda, described as the jewel of Port wine estates. The wines of this magnificent property, which contains some of the oldest vineyards in the Douro Valley, are the heart of Croft’s Vintage Port blend.

Croft Port, 1960

Vintage Port

"Bright tawny with orange flecks, there are whacks of dried fruit and sultanas on the nose, with hints of bitter chocolate and Christmas pudding. The palate is sweet but balanced with a lovely acidity. A fascinating multilayered wine, with the oxidization bringing out maple syrup flavours, coupled with leather and cigar box aromas wrapped around rich dried fruit. Complex, captivating and holding up beautifully." Decanter, Fine Wine Encounter 2009.

The 1960 has a light russet core with deep tawny rim. A lovely soft, mulberry infused nose with a touch of sloes and coca that could do with a tad more delineation.

Croft Port, Non Vintage

New

430th Anniversary Reserve Ruby Port

Croft has released this special limited edition bottling of Reserve Ruby Port to mark the 430th anniversary of Croft Ports and The Armada year. 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.

Dating back to 1588, Henry Thompson founded his label in the midst of the armada, setting up a trading company dealing with wines from Portugal, today known as Croft Port. Celebrating its 430th anniversary, this limited edition ruby port combines a crisp fruity nose with delicate floral notes of rose petal and violet, offset with finishes of strawberry and cherry.

Croft Port, 2011

Vintage Port SINGLE BOTTLE 75cl

** 95 Points - James Suckling **

The near perfect viticultural conditions which prevailed in the Douro Valley in 2011 was bound to allow for great things in Croft's highly regarded Quinta da Roêda. This Quinta always forms the core around which Croft craft their Vintage Port blend, yet in this excellent year all of the blend's components have been sourced from here, producing a scented, exotic and lusciously opulent style. In the words of wine-maker David guimareans, the high perfomance of Quinta da Roêda gave this vintage 'an additional layer of density and depth of flavour' with silky, integrated tannins and powerful grip on the finish.

Croft Port, 2007

Vintage Port - SINGLE BOTTLE 75cl

93/100 (Outstanding) Wine Journal

"There is a nice limpidity on this Croft 2007. It is not the power that strikes you but the purity with black cherries, liquorices, violets and a hint of iodine. Very tight and focused. The palate is full-bodied with chewy tannins on the entry, pure blackberry, raspberry, white pepper and Asian spice towards the finish. Very fine focus, very pure and harmonious. Sensuous finish but it just tapers away when I need more grip and assertiveness. Still, this is a lovely Croft." Neil Martin , Wine Journal

Croft Port, 1991

Croft Vintage Port

Wine Spectator awarded this 94 points!

Croft vintages are only declared a few times a decade, when a remarkable year has been had. This is a rounded, supple port with a phenomenal mouthfeel. Will continue to keep for another five or so years.

Deep, opaque, just turning on the rim. Still quite a dense nose with underlying plummy fruit and floral maturity just starting to emerge. Full, rich and fleshy with some bitter chocolate intensity at the core and a firm tannic grip building towards the finish. Alc: 20.5%. Drink 2011-25.

Croft Port, 1985

Vintage Port

The 1985 will be an early-developing port. It shows aromas that border on overripeness and offers scents of plums and black cherries. Full-bodied, rich yet lush and soft, this husky wine had loads of concentration, a very sweet long finish and light tannins. Parker Wine Buyers Guide.

Croft Port, 1977

Vintage Port

With a red brick colour turning to amber on the rim the 1977 Croft reveals a seductive, ripe and complex nose with undertones of rich jammy and figgy fruit. There is fine caramel and exotic notes of cedar wood and spice. A superb fruit driven Vintage Port, true to the tradition of this ancient Pinhão Valley estate.

A clear claret/garnet core. The nose is ripe and attractive, but lacking the complexity of say, Taylors ’77 for example. Hints of cherry, brambly red-berried fruit, ginger and honey, though improving with time in glass as more blackberry leaf element begin to appear. The palate is sweet,
