Roeda is Croft's historic quinta adjacent to the town on Pinhao. Farmed by Antonio Magalhaes since the Fladgate Partnership purchased Croft in 2001, this site is coming back to match its legendary stature. In 2018, the wine has the fatness of a year with ample reserves in the soil, a coolness that feels tied to the river itself. The fruit is rosy and vibrant red, the tannins gentle and aristocratic.
