NV Croft Pink

Post by jdaw1 » 02:45 Thu 18 Sep 2008

“Hello again†, I’m greeted, “we have a new port†. So far, so good. “It’s roz醝. “Is that Rozès or rosé?†, asks I. We sit. The bottle, brightly labelled “Croft Pink†, is presented to me, as if it is about to be opened, along with a glass containing a minuscule sample.

The restaurant is too dark to assess colour. Nosing of raisins, quite distinctively raisins, and sugar. The taste matches. No heat; quite but not perfectly smooth; very sweet and raisiny. Doesn’t compare to a worthwhile VP, but a far better product than I had expected. An entirely acceptable mixer port, but not a stand-alone thing unless it and its containing glass are really frozen.

I didn’t get RonnieRoots’ “bright raspberries†, but can’t deny that the term might be right.

My thirty-month-old daughter. Which is a “no†.
