To commemorate the Croft 430th anniversary, the company produced a limited edition Port, the Croft 430th Anniversary Celebration Edition.
The labels display a re-production of the work “Sinking of the Spanish Armada in 1588” by the Dutch artist Jan Luyken, which is part of the collection of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
Tasting Notes: Deep ruby black colour with a narrow purple rim. The nose opens with a fine crisp fruitiness, black cherry, blackberry and cassis, and aromas of fresh plum. Delicate floral notes of rose petal and violet emerge to provide elegance and complexity. The wine has the typical Croft roundness and smoothness offset by a fresh acidity and firm but well integrated tannins. The palate is crammed with intense berry fruit and finishes with luscious flavours of strawberry and cherry. A superb reserve Port, displaying all the fine fruit character which is a hallmark of the Croft style.
