Deliciously ripe cherry and raspberry fruit flavours with lovely nuances of honey and grapefruit. Pour it over some ice, or even mix with soda water or tonic for a long drink.

The idea behind Croft Pink was to create a soft and approachable style of Port with a crisp, light finish and a delicate pink colour. This proved quite a task for winemaker David Guimaraens and the team at Croft, considering the intense tannic character of the Douro grapes. The solution was to take red Port grapes and handle them in a similar way to producing an elegant non-wooded white wine. This new technique extracts a light amount of colour from the skins without extracting the astringent tannins. Cold settling prior to fermentation and temperature controlled, cool fermentation result in a wonderfully fresh and vibrant wine, full of the rich fruit flavours of Port but with a unique and distinctive appeal.
