Croft Pink Port NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Attractive floral notes underline the pungent, aromatic raspberry fruit aromas. The palate is full of deliciously ripe cherry and raspberry fruit flavors with lovely nuances of honey and grapefruit. Serving Suggestions This port is best served chilled and is an excellent aperitif accompanied by roasted almonds or olives. It is also a delicious accompaniment to lighter desserts and fruit.

Croft - Vinhos, S.A:
Roêda has long been recognised as one of the great Port vineyards and in the Douro Valley there is a common saying, attributed to the nineteenth century poet Vega Cabral, which goes ‘if the wine district were a golden ring, Roêda would be the diamond’.

Stonkingly gorgeous chery colour. Raspberry fruit aromas and an attractive softness to the palate with notes of dried red fruits. A subtle hint of tannin and a surge of alcohol and weight reminds you that this is a port and not a simple pink wine. Not hugley complex but with a certain liveliness. Drink chilled. http://www.spittoon.biz/croft_pink_port.html

    Although listed as a dessert wine, Croft Pink isn't as sweet as other dessert wines I've tried, however the nectar is moreso sweeter than a dinner wine. Clearly deserving to be enjoyed without food, my classification for this deep rose coloured delight would be an "after dinner wine". It is by far my favourite wine. If you enjoy the scent, then you'll enjoy the taste. For an evening at home with your significant other, I would not recommend any other.

    An innovative new rosé-style of Port wine that's ruby red in color or "Pink" as Croft has trademarked the name. Wonderfully fresh, with loads of red berries on the palate. Fantastic on the rocks. A type of wine that you drink young. No need to age this Pink Port.

    Croft Pink bears all the hallmarks of a beautifully made light ruby with fine berry fruit flavours but with a contemporary twist and a light cherry colour. It exudes vibrant freshness which is lighter in style than other ports to appeal to a new audience of consumers. Croft Pink is the first ever port with a beautiful light ruby colour, achieved from light contact with the skins of traditional port grapes - lighter in style with a unique crisp and fruity flavour. Serve chilled or over ice in a wine glass for maximum enjoyment.
