NV Croft Triple Crown

Post by AHB » 14:58 Fri 15 Mar 2019

A reserve ruby from Croft. Soft red colour with more pigment than the finest reserve; 50% opaque. Subdued nose, soft entry with sweet red fruit that brings some slightly stewed bramble. Nicely structured on the palate bringing a spicy edge to the fruit on the aftertaste and a lovely, good length finish. 84 14-Mar-19
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
