Port Wine DOW’S Fine Ruby 75cl
The grapes used in the production of Dow’s Fine Ruby were a blend of traditional Portuguese varieties from the Douro Valley, such as Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz and Tinto Cão. Dow’s Fine Ruby was aged in seasoned oak casks at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia for an average of 3 years, and bottled when ready to drink. Exuberant youthful fruit flavours make it perfect for informal drinking. Serve slightly chilled in hot weather.
Deep and lively Ruby colour. The wine is full-bodied and has very appealing red fruit driven aromas. On the palate, fresh and youthful with raspberry and cherry flavours, combined with a long and intense finish.
Total Acidity: 4.13 g/l tartaric acid
Reviews & Awards
International Wine Challenge 1997
Dow’s received the first ever Gold medal awarded to a Ruby Port in the history of
this prestigious wine competition. This outstanding achievement clearly endorsed the very high quality of Dow’s, across its complete range of Ports.
“Warm bramble fruits fill the palate with good texture and rounded flavours last on the rich finish.”
