Description

Croft Fine Ruby Port is blended from red wines produced in the Baixo Corgo and Cima Corgo areas of the upper Douro Valley, selected for their depth of colour, intense fruit and full, firm palate. These wines are matured for about three years in oak vats, where they soften and develop without losing their fresh, intense fruity character and their deep ruby colour.

Deep ruby-red colour, with garnet rim. Classic intense black fruit nose. Firm, vigorous, full-bodied palate, with fresh fruit flavours and a long finish.

Croft is the oldest Port wine producer trading today, dating from 1588, the very year that the Spanish Armada was defeated by Sir Francis Drake. The history of the House includes aristocrats, espionage and a tonic for invalids, but from the very start Croft was renowned for its vintage Ports having produced the earliest on record in 1781.

Quinta da Roêda, the jewel of Douro Valley vineyards acquired by Croft in 1889, is also integral to the House’s vintage wines. The 109 hectare property has some 332,000 vines planted overlooking the Douro River, and produces characteristically plump, full and vigorously fruity wines with a hallmark ‘gum cistus’ aroma of the native aromatic bush.
