Ruby Dum

Description and Reviews:
Ruby Dum and Tawny Dee - the Niepoort 'twins' as reflected on the bottles. These wines come from the same lot, but over a five year period are aged differently so that the one is rich and ruby in style, while the other becomes paler and more tawnied. A rather novel and fascinating new approach which really works well. Both wines are very drinkable indeed.

Port coming from Niepoortland, takinginspiration from Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee of Alice in Wonderland fame - one source of grapes, separated in the port lodge either to be aged vintage style in large barrels and bottled (ruby dum); or tawny style spending extended time in small barrels prior to bottling (tawny dee).

The Ruby dum is more than just a port - it's a delightful full bodied, slightly sweet red wine with lots of lively dark fruits and a fine streak of minerality and can be drunk in that manner - but hold back on the quantity for obvious health reasons!
