Croft Quinta De Roeda vintage port 2004 in wooden gift box makes an ideal port gift for any occasion.
On the simple side, but nevertheless a very enjoyable Roeda. This single estate vintage port will normally mature more quickly than the main classic vintages. Will show its robust style to perfection within fifteen to twenty years.
The 2003/2004 winter was very dry, having only rained 1/3 of the quantity registered the previous winter. The lack of water during the early part of the growing season led to very little pressure from disease. The main concern in July was mainly one of doubting the vines capacity to ripen the grapes due to the drastic shortage of water.
The vintage stood out for the perfect weather conditions for the whole period. The young ports show good structure with very fresh berry fruit aromas, resulting from the cooler than normal ripening period.
