We’ve tasted this
The Ruby half of the Niepoort 'twins' is a classic rich Ruby, with assertive bright primary fruit.
Dark red in colour with a fresh vibrant aroma of dark fruits which follows through on the palate along with an almost mineral character, a youthful wine with good extract and great balance, offering superb "drinkability".
Classically trodden and fermented in granite lagares, it is then aged in large old vats (toneis and balseiros), 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.
