|Vinification Details||Croft Pink Port is the first of its kind- a pioneering Rosé Port created by our team of winemakers to be fresh, fruity crisp and appealing. It is made in the same way as a Rosé wine- red grapes are left on their skins as fermentation commences, losing some of their colour to give the must a beguiling pink colour. Like all Port, Croft Pink is fortified with a neutral grape spirit of 77% alcohol by volume, which stops the fermentation. This keeps the wine sweet, and raises the alcoholic strength to 19.5%.|
|History||Croft is the oldest Port house, and can trace its history back to 1588, the year of the Spanish Armada. Croft has aged its wines in the same premises in Vila Nova da Gaia at the mouth of the Douro River since the nineteenth century. These include the famous Terreirinho vault, which measures 140 metres from end to end. Since returning to family ownership in 2001, Croft's lodges and cellars are now open to the public once more.|
|Regional Information||Vines have grown on the steep and rocky slopes of the Douro valley in Northern Portugal since Roman times. The soil is schist, a hard rock which often has to be broken up using dynamite when planting. Vines are one of the few plants to survive here, and have to put roots down as much as 25 feet in order to find water. Summers can be hot, and winters very cold, but the Douro's unique and austere beauty means that it is now a World Heritage Site.|
