Of the NiePOoRTland twins, although similar at the outset, with time, Ruby Dum retains its youthful, headstrong character, dominated by red cherries and plums with great freshness from ageing in large wooden vats in our cool cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia.
An expressive port with great character inspired by Alice in Wonderlands famous Tweedle twins.
Niepoort Port Wine Ruby Dum
The wine originates from low yielding old vineyards in the Cima Corgo Region of the Douro Valley.
The grapes are predominantly trodden in Lagares, prior to ageing in large wooden vats at our lodges in Gaia and bottled with an average age of 3 years.
Dark red in colour with a fresh vibrant aroma of dark fruits which follows through on the palate along with an almost mineral character, a youthful wine with good extract and great balance, offering superb "drinkability". Ready to drink now after a meal on its own or with soft cheeses.
