Niepoort Ruby has a dark red color and vibrant aromas of red and black fruits. On the palate it has a marked mineral character. It is a fairly young wine with a good extraction and balance that makes it enjoyable straight away, but it also has a good aging potential in the bottle.

Characteristics Niepoort Ruby

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Niepoort Ruby is a Port wine coupage of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Amarela, Sousão, Tinta Roriz and other varieties. It is made by the legendary Niepoort Port winery.

Niepoort is a Portuguese winery that was founded in 1842. It is currently run by Dirk Niepoort, fifth generation of the family it is named after. They use traditional Portuguese techniques such as grape treading, fermentation in cement tanks or aging in pipes, 550-litre port-aging barrels, whilst also using new technologies that ensure the grapes are handled with care. The winery has vines in different locations, some of which are over 100 years old, and an aging cellar in the town of Vila Nova de Gaia.

The Niepoort Ruby vineyards are approximately 30 years old. They are planted in shale soils with a density between 4,000 to 6,000 strains per hectare. The grapes are harvested manually to be able to carry out the first selection in the field and to ensure that the clusters reach the winery whole.

The Niepoort Ruby vintage ferments in presses and then ages in large barrels in the Vila Nova de Gaia cellar. It is finally bottled after at least 3 years of aging.

Niepoort Ruby is a fresh, young and fruity Port. It can be stored in the bottle for a few years.

This winery has belonged to the Van der Niepoort since 1848, when it was ceded by Eduard Krebe, who founded it six years earlier. Currently, the company is directed by Rolf van der Niepoort and his son, Dirk, the fifth generation. It is one of the most renowned Portuguese wine companies in the world, both for its quality —only 16 vintages classified as Vintage in 60 years— and for the great personality and inimitable style of its wines.
