Croft White Port 1963

Winemaker's Notes:

"Has great elegance and harmony, and should continue to improve for many years. Medium ruby-red, with very fresh plum aromas, medium-bodied, with very delicate fresh fruit flavors, lively acidity and a delicate finish."*-- Wine Spectator Rating: 91 pts*

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’.

Magnificent. Fruity, vibrant, layered, and complex. Nose is very powerful and intense. Creme de cassis, vanilla, dried fruits, smoke, and leather quite jammy. Color is a little light, and see through which leads me to believe this already 44 year old bottle has 10-15 more years if not longer! Sediment was noticeable, decant and strain, let breathe one hour minimum. Hold or drink now till 2020 + -Note to drinker: (corks for this vintage are notoriously brittle so be careful).
