Croft Vintage Port 2011. One of the original founding Port houses, Croft traces its origins to 1588 when the company was established in England by Henry Thompson, a member of the Merchants Company of York. The Croft family, who joined the partnership in 1736 and gave the firm its present name, served the Port trade with great distinction.
Deze Vintage Port 2011 is een bijzonder goed jaar. Een jaar om lang te bewaren. Kinderen geboren in 2011 kunnen op hun vijftigste levensjaar nog van deze port genieten. De port heeft veel kracht en is rijk aan zwart fruit. evt. verpakt in kist van 3 flessen.
Croft is one of the most famous Vintage Port producers. Its reputation derives from its ownership of Quinta da Roêda, one of the finest estates in the Douro Valley, and from such legendary wines as the Croft 1945, recognised as one of the best of that landmark year. In 2001 this distinguished and historic firm was acquired by the owners of the Taylor and Fonseca Port houses and since this return to family ownership has consolidated its position as a ‘first growth’ Vintage Port producer.Croft’s Managing Director, Adrian Bridge, commented: “The 2011 harvest in the Douro Valley followed a near-perfect ripening season which produced wonderfully balanced, classic Ports. The quality was apparent from the outset and has been confirmed by the development of the wines since harvest time. The Croft 2011 Vintage Port has the richness and aromatic complexity which are the hallmarks of the house style but also impressive structure and depth of flavour. This is one of the most muscular and powerful of recent Croft Vintages.”
Deep purple black colour. The complex seductive nose has the archetypal Croft opulence but displays impressive depth, background and reserves of aroma. A rich, powerful fruitiness provides the backdrop for heady scents of blossom and rock rose. Luscious ripe berry fruit flavour surges though the palate. The wine’s velvety texture is underpinned by taut, muscular, perfectly integrated tannins which provide stamina with an attractive firmness and vigour to the finish. More virile and structured than some recent Vintages from this classic house, the 2011 nevertheless displays all the rich ripe fruitiness and exotic scented character associated with the Croft house style.
