            [Notes2] => The grapes for Dow`s Ruby Port are drawn from vineyards across the Douro Valley where the stony schist soil afford excellent drainage allowing water to reach the vines’ deep roots. The climate is consistent, a combination of temperate and Mediterranean influences and rainfall is between 400-800mm annually. The vineyards are planted primarily with the Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barocca and the Tinta Roriz varieties.

The precise identity of these, and the proportion each represents in the final blend, may not be known even to the winemaker. For some growers in the Douro region of Portugal, the ambiguity over what is in their fortified wines is not an attempt to protect some proprietary secret, but rather a matter of reality: they simply don’t know for sure what they have growing in their vineyards.

About this product +

Producer >

The roots of Dow’s standing as a great Port house reach back over 200 years. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, Dow’s Vintage Ports have been landmark wines in virtually every great year, consistently setting the standard amongst all Port houses. Vintage Ports such as the remarkable Dow 1896, the 1927, 1945 1955, 1963 and so on until the Dow 1994 are all legends in the history of this great wine. These Ports are still  magnificent today, even when 50 or 100 years old. Few wines can claim this quality and pedigree. In 1912, Andrew Symington became a partner in Dow’s and today five members of the family own and work in the company: they personally manage all aspects of winemaking from the vineyard to the final bottling.

Viticulture >

The grapes for Dow`s Ruby Port are drawn from vineyards across the Douro Valley where the stony schist soil afford excellent drainage allowing water to reach the vines’ deep roots. The climate is consistent, a combination of temperate and Mediterranean influences and rainfall is between 400-800mm annually. The vineyards are planted primarily with the Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barocca and the Tinta Roriz varieties.

Winemaking >

Aged in seasoned oak casks for 3 years.
