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 has declared that it will release 2016 as a classic vintage. This is the sixth classic vintage release since Croft’s return to family management in 2001. Comments on the Croft 2016 Vintage Port are as follows:

Adrian Bridge, Managing Director
"This is a classic Croft Vintage Port, wonderfully aromatic with a rich fruitiness and an exotic herbal character. However, it has the poise and sense of proportion characteristic of the 2106 vintage. A relatively small crop means that the amount of Vintage Port made was smaller than usual.”

Croft Port, 2012

Quinta de Roeda HALF BOTTLE 37.5 cl

The 2012 Croft has a dense ruby black core surrounded by a purple red rim. The nose is true to the Roeda style, a luscious fruitiness combined with the resiny,musky redolence of wild herbs and gum cistus. However, the year with its typical purity and finesse has placed this finely constituted wine at the elegant and subtle end of the Roeda spectrum. Blended with the typically jammy fruit are fresher notes of raspberry and apricot and the pallate is lifted by a crisp acidity and supported by a dense warp of firm sinewy tannins. Slightly more restrained and clearly delineated than some Roeda vintages, the wine nevertheless displays the seductive ripe fruitiness which is the hallmark of this great historic estate.

Croft Port, 2011

Vintage Port DOUBLE MAGNUM 3.0L

RARE DOUBLE MAGNUM FORMAT

** 95 Points - James Suckling **

Tasting note: 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 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.

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 MAGNUM

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, 2003

Vintage Port

*** 93 Points - eRobert Parker ***

Vintage Ports are made exclusively from the grapes of one harvest. Bottled after two years in casks, it is in the bottle that the long, slow, ageing process transforms the young wine into a magnificent Vintage Port.
A Croft Vintage is only declared in years of optimum quality. These demanding standards mean that a Croft Vintage might be declared perhaps only two or three times in a decade.

Reviews: A medium intensity Port with a garnet core and mahogany rim. A lovely pronounced nose of figs and prunes, with some walnut characters. Also slightly earthy.

Quinta da Roeda Vintage Port (Comes in Original Croft box as illustrated)

This 2002 Vintage is another sensational Port from one of the most famous Vintage Port houses, Croft. A blend of traditional Port grapes, picked when the grapes were fully ripe, gives this a deep ruby finish. A luscious body promotes deep, black berry flavours and hints of chocolate. This is a powerful red that winemaker David Guimaraens has done an exceptional job of producing.

Croft Port, 1982

Vintage Port

A medium-boded Croft port, the 1982 vintage port has a light and fruity aroma, backed up by delicious dark fruits on the palate with a sweetness that hints at burnt sugar at times. A well composed port that will perhaps not age as well as other vintage ports from this era, but is beautifully poised for drinking now.

Quinta da Roeda

From the famous Quinta da Roeda vineyards, this 1980 single quinta vintage port has a garnet -tawny appearance. The nose is of dried fruit candy and walnuts. On the palate the wine is mature and at its peak balanced and elegant. The finish is perhaps a little shorter than one would like, but all round this is a excellent value port.

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,
