2011 Croft (Bottle - 1/75cl)

The near perfect viticultural conditions which prevailed in the Douro Valley in 2011 was bound to allow for great things in Crofts highly regarded Quinta da Roêda. This Quinta always forms the core around which Croft craft their Vintage Port blend, yet in this excellent year all of the blends components have been sourced from here, producing a scented, exotic and lusciously opulent style. 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. According to MD Adrian Bridge this vintage has the usual richness and aromatics of Croft, but stands out as one of the most muscular and powerful of recent Croft vintages. Not one of the deepest colours. Rather smudgy, indistinct nose. Something a bit vegy/herby about this wine. More open than most. Almost as though it is made to sit under the Fonseca and Taylor from this stable. Agreeable but not the most ambitious. Slightly sudden dry finish. Just a tad spindly. jancisrobinson.com When to drink:2030 to 2050 Rating : 17
