Rabbit Dry White is made in the tradicional style with long skin maceration. The final blend includes different wines aged in oak casks with an average of 3,5 years.

Rabbit Dry White is lovely if served chilled as an aperitif or as a long drink with Tonic Water, ice and a twist of lemon.

Vinification

The white grapes undergo long skin maceration, occasionally with foot treading in lagares, with fermentation carrying on to near dryness, before the addition of pure grape brandy. Ageing is carried in small old oak casks in our cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia for at least 3.5 years before bottling.

Tasting Notes

Golden/brown in colour with a delightful aroma of nuts and almonds which comes through on the palate with a fresh concentrated spirity finish, from extended ageing in small old oak barrels.

NiePOoRTland twins: Ruby Dum and Tawny Dee. Identical siblings born in Douro.

With time, Ruby Dum retains its youthful, strong character, dominated by red cherries and plums with great freshness from ageing in large wooden vats in the cool cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia.

With time, Tawny Dee acquires great wisdom and subtleness through ageing in small old oak casks exhibiting discrete characters of dried stone fruits.

Vinification

The wine originates from low yielding old vineyards in Cima Corgo region of 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.

Tasting Notes

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.
