Croft LBV was developed to satisfy the demand for a high quality ready to drink alternative to vintage port for everyday consumption. Unlike vintage port, which is bottled after only two years in wood and ages in bottle, LBV is bottled after four to six years and is ready to drink when bottled. The wines used to blend Croft LBV were drawn from a reserve of some of the best full bodied red ports, produced at this harvest, from grapes grown on Croft’s own vineyard, Quinta da Roeda, and other top properties in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior areas. These wines were aged in wood and then blended after six years. The blending process ensures that the wine is balanced and complete and that there is continuity of style in relation to previous Croft LBVs. Aromatic, slightly spicy bouquet with plenty of tropical fruit aromas. Luscious, full, rich and rounded palate. Good depth and dimension.
