Croft announces a Quinta da Roêda 2015 Vintage Port
The house of Croft will be releasing a Quinta da Roêda Vintage Port from the excellent 2015 harvest.
Announcing the release, Croft’s Managing Director, Adrian Bridge, commented: ‘We are delighted with the quality of the 2015 Quinta da Roêda Vintage Port. Our investment in the Roêda vineyards continues to reap benefits in terms of consistently first class wines.’ He noted: ‘Typically of the 2015 wines, the Roêda Vintage Port is immediately appealing and will make fine mature drinking by 2025, yet still be displaying all of its elegance and refinement twenty years later.’
Croft’s Head of Viticulture, António Magalhães, remarked: ‘The health of the crop was exceptional. Warm days and cool nights produced long fermentations and balanced extraction throughout the harvest.’
Quinta da Roêda is recognised as one of the finest Douro Valley estates, a vast sweep of terraced vineyard located on the north bank of the Douro, just upstream from the village of Pinhão. The rich, scented wines of Roêda, with their plump fruity character, form the basis for the Croft Vintage Port blend and are the cornerstone of the Croft house style.
The Quinta da Roêda 2015 Vintage Port will be available through Croft’s worldwide distributors later in the year.
