NV Croft 430th Anniversary

Post by AHB » 15:00 Fri 15 Mar 2019

Deep red, nicely balanced between maturity and youth; 90% opaque. Very attractive gentle nose of sweet bramble fruit. Nicely balanced on the palate with generous sweet fruit, and tannins which appear with a bit of work. Sweet fruit on the finish. This is enjoyable, easy to drink and finishes with panache and impact. A nice step up the Ruby Reserve ladder from the Triple Crown. 85 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)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
