NV Croft Fine Ruby

Post by AHB » 14:57 Fri 15 Mar 2019

Soft ruby colour; 40% opaque. Gentle red fruit on the nose, slightly stewed to give sweetness and complexity. On the palate there are gentle tannins with strawberry and sweet bramble. Gentle flavoured finish. A nicely structured Ruby Port, full of sweet luch fruit that makes it easy to drink. 83 14-Mar-19
