Quinta do Crasto Vintage Port 2003


SKU 07438


Foot trodden in stone lagares in the traditional manner, Quinta do Crasto only 'declares' a vintage Port when there is sufficient wine of outstanding quality. Wine from the older vineyards usually forms the backbone of the blend. Vintage Ports are bottled without filtration after spending around two years ageing in cask. The wines continue to age in bottle for up to fifty years, gaining depth and complexity. Like all wines which throw a sediment, they should be decanted before serving.

Wine SpectatorLots of grapey character, with prunes. Follows through to a full-bodied palate, with very sweet fruit and a plummy finish. Soft and round. Best after 2010.

Wine EnthusiastThis beautiful quinta, high above the Douro, has produced a generous, raisin and black fig-flavored Port. It is ripe, plummy and sweet in style, although the tannins at the end show good structure.
