The House of Croft has been an important player in this style of Port for many years. The wines used to blend Croft LBV were drawn from a reserve of some of the best full bodied red ports, produced at this harvest, from grapes grown on Croft’s own vineyard, Quinta da Roêda, and other top properties in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior areas. Unlike vintage port, which is bottled after only two years in wood and ages in bottle, LBV is aged in wood and then blended after 6 years and is ready to drink when bottled. The blending process ensures that the wine is balanced and complete and that there is continuity of style in relation to previous Croft LBVs.
Aromatic, slightly spicy bouquet with plenty of Intense blackcurrant, cherry and plum aromas. Luscious, full, rich and rounded palate. Good depth and dimension.
