1922 Croft

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

Mature red colour, 40% opaque. Gentle on the nose with soft red cherry and a lovely pine-needle freshness. Smooth on the palate, full of fruit with dried cherries and a dark chocolate finish, rich and long. A lovely - no, a wonderful - rich and mature Vintage Port; Vintage Port the way it should be. My second placed wine of the night. 96/100. Consumed 15-Dec-22. Decanted 2½ hours.
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

2024: Niepoort 1900 Colheita, b.1971. A near perfect Port.
