Niepoort Ruby Port

About the Wine

Ruby Port is the freshest and least complex of fortified wines, deep red in color and filled with sweet flavors of red fruits. Ruby Port is made from wine produced from a blend of red grapes, fortified and aged no more than three years to maintain its fresh flavor and brilliant color. Further, the wine is filtered before bottling, the reason why they don’t improve with aging. This is also the reason why it retains its red color.

Winemaker Notes

Dark red in color, 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.

Food Pairings

This style of port pairs best with blue cheeses, dark chocolate desserts and desserts made with berries and cherries. Ruby Port lacks the nuttier flavours of aged port and features sweet notes of blackberries, cherries, dates, figs, plums, raisins, raspberries and licorice

The Wine Down

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.

You can find this bottles for under $20.00
