RUBY MAGNUM Wood Box

At Niepoort we believe that the colour of the port should be inspired by the "ruby stone".

Niepoort Ruby 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.

VINIFICATION

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". Ready to drink now, after a meal, on its own or with soft cheeses.
