Niepoort 'Drink Me' Ruby Port 375ml Half Bottle
Drink Me Port Series Ruby Dum Niepoort 375ml, rich, full bodied, fruit driven, delicious. The quirkily named Ruby Dum is classically trodden and fermented in granite lagares with wild yeast, and then aged in large old vats where oxidative development is minimal. The wine has dense rich lush fruit, opulent sweetness and great persistance in the mouth. The little half bottle makes a great accompaniment to a plate of cheese after dinner and is also a nice stocking filler gift at Xmas!
Founded in 1842, the small Port house of Niepoort is now run by 5th generation brother and sister Dirk and Verena Niepoort. Its easy to forget that it was only a few years ago that Niepoort was only sought out by a small band of faithful followers, as stock of remarkable, artisan wines built up in the cramped old Niepoort lodge in Rua Serpa Pinto in Vila Nova de Gaia. These days, with a formidable international reputation which spans all styles from aged tawny to vintage, and all points in between, demand threatens to outstrip supply. Ports are all made at the old Museu de Lagares in Vale de Mendiz, which has the only circular granite Lagares in the Douro. Niepoort's mission has always been to be a "niche player", to produce distinctive Ports and Douro wines, combining centuries-old tradition with innovation. This continues today with new vineyard projects to produce dry, natural wines in the Douro - Bairrada - Dão triangle. Many of their vineyards now have organic certification, which is very much against the grain in contemporary Port making. After 150 years of doing things just a little differently, Niepoort are now highly respected for their delicious Ports and an increasing array of natural table wines.
