Croft – Pink NV, Port, 0.75l
Croft Pink is perhaps most alike to an elegant Ruby with the seductive aroma and taste of berries and cherries. Besides that, aromas of raspberry blossom honey and grapefruit are dominating. Unlike other Port types the ‘Pink’ is not aged on wood and therefore something livelier and fresher of style with a playful dry finish that makes you long for a new nip.
Croft Pink is best served chilled in a generous wine glass, or poured over ice with a splash of soda water. It also lends itself beautifully for a range of cocktails creating the perfect opportunity for Port to be enjoyed throughout the year.
One of the original Port houses steeped in tradition, Croft have now created this innovative pink Port, the first of its kind. Made using a new technique that extracts delicate colour, low tannin and ripe fruit flavours from the traditional Portuguese grape varieties. A delicate nose of strawberry, raspberry and floral notes. The palate is ripe and lush, packed with a raspberry and rosehip sweetness, offset by a refreshing watermelon character. Serve simply over ice, or mixed into all manner of refreshing cocktails, limited only by your imagination.
