Croft Vintage Port 2000
Declared vintages are the best vintage years which produce wines of great concentration and longevity. Blending is usually with the best produce of more than one estate. Croft’s declared vintage ports, although based on the wines of Quinta da Roeda, sometimes also contain wines from other top estates.
- An opaque core with limpid ruby rim
- The nose is very dense, much more introverted than the nineties Crofts and the alcohol more integrated into bouquet
- The palate is full-bodied, very firm in structure with a little more austerity than usual
Croft vintage port 2000 pairs well with a variety of cheeses, chocolate desserts, and rich meat dishes.
Store the bottle lying down. Decant before serving at an ideal temperature of 16°C - 18°C.
Very good delineation although it does not quite have the exuberance or the flamboyance of the vivacious ’94. Conservative and foursquare towards the finish with an attractive hint of blood orange and good length.
The end of August and early September in 2000 gave perfect ripening conditions with long warm days. A couple of days of rain between the 10th and 18th September produced the ideal conditions and finished off the ripening. The resulting wines were big and full bodied with intense colour and very attractive aromas.
