the first ever rosé port
a new style of port
original, unique and innovative, croft pink was the first ever rosé port, and is still today, the one rosé port that springs to mind.
with vibrant flavours of ripe cherry and raspberry, with lovely nuances of honey and grapefruit, and a dry, very attractive finish. a versatile alternative, to enjoy on a refined occasion or in a more relaxed way.
produced from douro red grapes through an innovative technique
which extracts fresh, fruity flavours and delivers a subtle and delicate pink colour. the vinification method extracts a light amount of colour from the skins without extracting astringent tannins and without letting the fortification process dominate the final product. the cold decantation that precedes the cold fermentation is fundamental to ensure the freshness of the fruit aromas and their elegance..
“… croft pink, a lighter and fruity version of the favorite festive drink, which is the perfect drink for a summer sunset”
