Croft Vintage Port 2007

SKU 36974


Vintage Ports are made exclusively from the grapes of one harvest. Bottled after two years in casks, it is in the bottle that the long, slow, ageing process transforms the young wine into a magnificent Vintage Port. A Croft Vintage is only declared in years of optimum quality. These demanding standards mean that a Croft Vintage might be declared perhaps only two or three times in a decade.

Wine SpectatorShows aromas of very ripe fruit and sweet tobacco, with hints of earth and spices. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with round, velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. Likeable for its soft texture. Best after 2016.

Wine AdvocateFrom the 1991 vintage through 2003, the well-known producer Croft has received outstanding ratings in this journal. In that context the 2007 Croft Vintage Port is a mild disappointment. It is a straightforward effort with an attractive nose of damp earth, mineral, blackberry, and plum with herbal notes in the background. On the palate it comes off as a bit narrow, lacking in volume compared to the top wines of the vintage. It is firmly structured and is likely to evolve for up to a decade but is not a candidate for extended cellaring.

Wine EnthusiastWith its dry, dark side, this wine offers firm tannins to go with the somewhat austere structure. Of course there is sweetness here and an attractive perfumed violet aroma, but the texture dominates.
