Niepoort believes that the colour of the Port should be inspired by the 'ruby stone'. Their Ruby Port is fresh, young and fruity. An expressive Port with great character. Ruby keeps well for several years, although the wine will not improve with age. No decanting is necessary since the wine contains no sediment.

Tasting notes:
'This fresh, powerful ruby features lots of plush dark plum and sweet cherry flavors, with notes of milk chocolate. The spicy finish is fresh, juicy and balanced.' – Wine Spectator, 89/100

'Dark red in colour, with a fresh vibrant aroma of dark fruits which follows through on the palate along with a mineral character, a youthful wine with good extract and great balance, offering superb 'drinkability'.' –Winemaker

Producer information The Niepoort family has been creating Port Wines since 1842. Dirk Niepoort, fifth generation, is the head of the business after his father, Rolf's retirement in 2005. Dirk is a pioneer of table wines in Portugal and, as with all Dirk's projects around the world, his focus is on traditionally made wines that offer elegance while showcasing terroir. Dirk 'helped transform the region and the way the world thinks about wine' says Wine & Spirits Magazine about Dirk and his role in the Douro. His wines transcend the extreme heat of the Douro and display great freshness and elegance.
