Niepoort Ruby Reserve aims to be an accessible and easy drinking wine, while at the same time, retaining a high level of quality. A modern youthful style, resulting from a careful selection of very special wines aged for 3 to 4 years.
The grapes for this wine are sourced from various parcels of vineyards in the Cima Corgo, the heart of the Demarcated Douro Region. Vinified in lagares, ageing is carried out in large old oak casks, for a period of 3 to 4 years. Following ageing the various wines are put together so as to obtain a richer and complex final "blend".
- Tasting Notes
Bright red in colour, exhibiting a very attractive aroma, with notes of ripe red fruit that stand out (plum, cherry) along with a touch of dark chocolate and cocoa. Smooth on the palate, with evident tannins, but very round and soft. All balanced with good acidity which makes the wine easy to drink with chocolate based desserts.
