The Ruby half of the Niepoort ‘twins’ is a classic rich Ruby, with assertive bright primary fruit. Classically trodden and fermented in granite lagares, it is then aged in large old vats, where oxidative development is minimal. With time, Ruby Dum retains its youthful, strong character, dominated by red cherries and plums with great freshness from ageing in large wooden vats in the cool cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia.
Deep dark brick red. Rich ripe dark fruits, with hints of prunes, figs, blackberry and cherry. Warm fruit, full bodied with sweet ripe mellow finish. It is a perfect match with chocolate and medium-bodied cheeses or ham. It is also an excellent accompaniment to wild game dishes, especially duck. Can be served with desserts made with red fruits.
Pale gold with an intense and complex aroma of ripe golden fruit, blending tropical aromas with crystallized orange, plus hints of spices. On the palate is full bodied with a mature luscious tone and finishes with a balanced freshness and a long lasting finish.
Ancient vines, hand picked and 100% foot trodden and fermented in the circular granite lagares at Vale de Mendiz. This wine ages 4-6 years in large old oak vats (opposed to Vintage, that ages 2-3 years). LBV fills the gap between the rubies and the vintage ports since a Ruby Port should be drunk quite young and a great Vintage Port may need 15 to 20 years to really open up and show its splendour.
Niepoort’s Crusted bottling is based on some of the highest quality ports from a range of vintage harvests. 100% foot trodden and granite-fermented fruit, often ports that were originally destined for Vintage Port. This is amazing with Cheddar, Stilton, or even chocolate!
The Organic Bioma Vinha Velha is a single vineyard Vintage Port, rather than a single Quinta. The “Vinha Velha” refers to the extraordinary age of the vines at Vinha da Pisca, mostly exceeding 80 years old. Offered in very small quantities, this is a style of Vintage Port more akin to the very best English-bottled Vintage Ports of 1970 and before.
