Elegant hallmark from the jewel of Portugal estates
Croft Quinta Da Roeda Vintage Port 2012 375Ml Bottles
Jammy fruit, raspberries, blackberries
Dense ruby black core surrounded by a purple red rim. The nose is true to the Roéda 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 Roéda spectrum. Blended with the typically jammy fruit are fresher notes of raspberry and apricot and the palate is lifted by a crisp acidity and supported by a dense warp of firm sinewy tannins. Slightly more restrained and clearly delineated than some recent Roéda vintages, the wine nevertheless displays the seductive ripe fruitiness which is the hallmark of this great historic estate.
