1945 Croft

Post by Alex Bridgeman » 19:27 Sun 29 Oct 2017

Darker than the Fonseca Guimaraens 1942 drunk alongside this bottle, this being a warm honey colour. Sweet treacle on the nose and a much sweeter palate than the FG42. Sadly somewhat oxidised but still a decent palate presence. 84/100. Drunk 19-Jun-17. Decanted 1 hour.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
