Croft Quinta da Roeda Serikos 2017
Croft has announced the release of the first Vintage Port made from the produce of the old, historic vineyard plots on the company's flagship property, Quinta da Roeda. Named Serikos, a historical reference to the property's involvement in the production of silk following the destruction of its vineyards by Phylloxera and to the silken quality of its wines, it will be made available on allocation in very limited quantities.
Comments on this release are as follows:
Adrian Bridge, Managing Director:
"We are very excited to announce the release of Serikos, the first old vines Vintage Port from Croft's Quinta da Roeda. Roeda has one of the most extensive and well-preserved areas of old vineyard in the Douro Valley. First planted in the late 19th century, they represent a unique historic legacy and their essence is now encapsulated in a rare Vintage Port which we have named Serikos."
David Guimaraens, Head Wine Maker:
"If there was a year which cried out for a Vintage Port to be made from the old vines at Quinta da Roeda, 2017 was it. The first Serikos has all the
typicity of Roeda, with its opulence, silky texture and fine scented quality. But the old vines have added an overwhelming complexity and the wine has impressive
scale and depth."
