Croft Porto Fine Ruby

Croft Porto Fine Ruby 750ml     
Sku: 1054291

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

The fruit for Croft Fine Ruby Porto is sourced in the traditional way, from the highest-quality individual growers in the Douro Valley, where the varying altitude and aspect of the vineyards creates the potential for a complex wine of great character. In the winery, the newly developed, robotic “Port Toes” technology for treading allows the winery to maximize the quality of the fruit by imitating the traditional action of human feet and avoiding damage to the bitter grape seeds. Fermentation is halted by the addition of grape spirits before all the residual sugar has been fermented, creating a sweet, fortified wine. Croft Fine Ruby is a blend of young wines matured in neutral oak casks for an average of three years before bottling.

Tasting notes
An intense, deep ruby color, this wine offers blackfruit aromas, full body and a bright blueberry, blackberry and black cherry flavor. Made to be enjoyed immediately.
