Croft White Port (750ml)
The Croft Port house was established in 1588 and is the oldest firm operating in Oporto today. The company is renowned for its range of Port styles; vintage, wood aged reserves and tawnies.
This white Port is a blend of wines produced from white grapes grown mainly on the Upper slopes of the Douro Valley. The grapes used include the Arinto, Boal, Esgana Cão, Folgasão, Gouveio, Viosinho and Rabigato. The individual wines are aged in oak vats for about three years, where they acquire mellowness and character. They are blended to produce a rich white port in the traditional smooth, full bodied style that is bottled for immediate drinking. The nose is pronounced with aromas of tree fruit and hints of honey and oak. The off dry palate is full with a velvety texture and a long finish. White Port makes a great aperitif; serve it chilled or pour over ice and top with tonic and fresh mint during the warmer months.
