The Quinta da Roêda Vintage Port from the excellent 2015 harvest is now available.
The Croft wine makers will remember the 2015 harvest for the perfect condition of the grapes picked at Quinta da Roêda, from the extensive area of old vineyard to the more recent plantations.
The tasting notes reveal an intense purple-black centre surrounded by a vivid magenta rim. A typical Quinta da Roêda Vintage Port nose made up of a rich plump dark berry compote infused with exotic notes of ripe tropical fruit and the subtle pungency of wild herbs. Warm notes of liquorice, dark chocolate and spice contribute to the wine’s opulent character. The palate is smooth, round and full of rich, jammy flavour. The wine’s silky texture conceals the firm, well-knit tannins which emerge on the finish to provide an attractive firmness and grip. Characteristically of the 2015 Vintage Ports, the wine is immediately appealing but will continue to gain in elegance and refinement over the next three decades.
