Quinta da Roêda has historically been regarded as one of the greatest estates in the Douro valley. In years when Croft do not declare a vintage Port, they may choose to select the best wines from Roêda and bottle a Qunita da Roêda Port, this expresses the purity of the unique Roêda terrior. The 2009 vintage started in late September (23rd) and the hot weather experienced that year resulted in Croft producing high quality Ports
Deep ruby with a purple edge. Attractive cassis nose with powerful, concentrated fruit aromas. Fresh, rich, firm and full of fruit including, dark berries and chocolate. A wine with good body, structure and length.
Single Quinta wines need decanting as they are usually a decade old, and will throw a sediment as they age. Walnuts are an excellent accompaniment to Vintage Port, along with rich flavoured cheeses such as Stilton and dried fruits. Equally enjoyable drunk on its own.
