Niepoort Ruby Dum Port
The Dum is the ruby half of Niepoort's Douro 'twins' named for the Alice in Wonderland characters Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee
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. Ready to drink now, after a meal on its own or with soft cheeses.
The Niepoort family emigrated from the Netherlands to Portugal in the 18th century, and today, Dirk Niepoort runs the firm with a dedication and enthusiasm that makes him one of the most popular figures in the wine trade.
The Ruby half of the Niepoort 'twins' is a classic rich Ruby, with assertive bright primary fruit. 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.
