The idea behind Croft Pink is to create a soft and approachable style of port, with a crisp, light finish and a delicate pink colour. This took the team at Croft sometime to work out and they have now achieved their aim by gently crushing the port grapes to release their liquid and a slight amount of their colour but not the stringent tannins.
Attractive floral notes underline the pungent, aromatic raspberry fruit aromas. The palate is full of deliciously ripe cherry and raspberry fruit flavours with lovely nuances of honey and grapefruit.
Croft Pink is not just for the Ladies and is the new Pimms. Served by itself with ice, tonic water or lemonade or as part of a cocktail. Croft Pink is the perfect port to be enjoyed throughout the year and not reserved for after dinner.
My wife and I tasted this at a recent event and were impressed with the light fruity flavours and gorgeous floral tones.
Available in 50cl and 75cl bottles.
