This innovative new Rose style of Port has been made by a new technique which extracts fresh, fruity flavours and a subtle and delicate pink colour from limited contact with the skins of classic Port grape varieties, grown in top quality vineyards of the Douro Valley.
The result is wonderfully fresh and vibrant, full of the rich fruit flavours of Port but with a unique and distinctive appeal. It has created the perfect opportunity for Port to be consumed in the warmer months of the year when Port may not otherwise be the drink of choice.
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.

“Port, a rich tipple to have with stilton at Christmas, right? Not any more. Croft has created Pink Port, a lighter, fruit-flavoured version of the festive favourite that is the perfect drink for a balmy summer evening.”
Jonathan Ray, Daily Telegraph, June 2008
“Okay, this certainly isn’t for the purists, but this light ruby red Port ”“ the first of its kind ”“ is really rather fun, with vibrant damson/cherry fruit and a crisp finish. Ideal for summer, it’s designed to be served well chilled or over ice.”
