Fine Ruby

Region: Portugal / Douro Valley Porto
Grapes: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Tinta Amarela

The Fine Ruby Porto is made from selected grapes from the best vineyards of the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. Taylor Fladgate is an area leader in winemaking technology, as one of only three Porto producers to pioneer the development of piston fermenter techniques, called Port Toes, which extract significantly greater flavor and aroma than conventional pump-over fermentation. Fermentation is halted by the addition of grape spirits before all the residual sugar has been fermented, creating a sweet, fortified wine.

tasting note

A bright ruby-colored, sweet wine with aromas and flavors of sweet cherries, cassis, black plums and red fruit jam. A full body and supple tannins round out the wine on the palate.

food pairing

One of few wines that pair successfully with milk chocolate, ruby Porto is also excellent with berry desserts or on its own after dinner. Made to be consumed immediately, without further aging.
