Description

A bottle of Croft 1966 Vintage Port shipped and bottled by Croft & Co. Ltd. The vintage is stated on the capsule.

'This is why we cellar Vintage Port. This wine, at 52 and a bit years old, is utterly harmonious, mellow and elegant. It has complex notes of nuts, wax, cherries and dried herbs, with some lovely warmth and smoothness. There’s a spacious quality to the palate: there’s not too much going on – all the flavours are working together, and there’s a nice tension, too. It still has fruit, but the structure has melted into harmony. Age has improved this wine, but it doesn’t feel old. 96/100' Jamie Goode, WineAnorak.Com, 2019

Founded in 1588, Croft is the oldest firm still active today as a port producer. The cornerstone of Croft’s distinctive house style is the famous Quinta da Roêda, which includes some of the oldest vineyards in the Douro Valley and forms the core of Croft’s vintage port blend.

Please note, there is no size or ABV stated on the label but this appears to be a 75cl bottle.
