Description

Croft Quinta da Roêda Vintage Port 2018 is the cornerstone of Croft’s reputation as a producer of superb Vintage and vintage style Ports. Its characteristically plump, full, vigorously fruity wines, with their hallmark aroma of Gumcistus, the aromatic bush, are the quintessence of the inimitable Croft house style. In years when a classic Croft vintage port is not declared, the company may choose to select the very best wines from Roêda and bottle a Quinta da Roêda vintage port. Being the most select wine to come solely from the quinta, a Quinta da Roêda vintage port is the purest expression of the terroir of one of the finest properties in the Douro.

Very deep purple black at the centre, with a narrow purple red rim. Although the nose displays the seductive, opulent red fruit character which is a familiar feature of Roêda vintage ports, there are also intense, woodland berry aromas which add focus and finesse. As usual, the fruit is wrapped in an envelope of exotic balsamic, minty, eucalyptus scents. The first impression on the palate is of roundness and a rich, velvety texture but there is excellent acidity and well-integrated grippy tannins which emerge on the finish. The finish is powerful and very long with persistent crisp, red berry flavours. Although, as always, the 2018 Roêda Vintage is ripe and seductive, the characteristics of the year and the contribution of the wines from Roêda’s oldest vineyard plots has placed this superb single-quinta Vintage Port at the elegant and restrained end of the spectrum.
