A big, chunky Rhone from a fantastic little cooperative in Estézargues near Avignon. Made with minimal intervention, unfined, unfiltered. Soft red fruits on the palate, hearty, but really approachable.
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.
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.
A wonderfully fragrant and concentrated Chardonnay. Stone fruit flavours, elderflower, beautiful balance.
