Classic Vintage 1994

Choose the year:

Croft has remained true to its distinctive Vintage Port style, characterised by a powerful, ripe fruitiness and a round luscious palate. Croft Vintages develop great aromatic complexity with age and a soft velvety texture.

Tasting Notes: Deep ruby colour with a hint of brick on the rim. Aromatic, plumy, dark chocolate nose. Smooth, luscious, ripe fruit flavours with a velvety chocolate edge. Good structure and nicely held length.

viticultural year and harvest

The winter of 1993-1994 was extremely wet throughout the region. As a result, most vineyards experienced a very low yield, with production down as much as 75% in relation to the average in some areas of the Douro.

In spite of the poor start, the growing season was satisfactory, with dry warm weather broken only by a few short periods of rain. In contrast to the preceding three years, there were no periods of very intense summer heat in the summer – the temperature never exceeded 38ºc – and this, combined with well-timed rainfall, has resulted in an evenly-ripened crop, producing musts rich in sugar, anthocyanins and aroma.

"Perhaps equal to the legendary 1945. The essence of raspberries and black fruit. Full body and medium-sweet, boasting loads of fruit and a chewy, tannic finish.”"

"Loads of sweet coffee aromas on the nose. Liqueur raspberry and strawberry on the palate and rich, perfumed length. Combines tertiary mocha characters with primary fruit very effectively. "
