Delaforce Fine Ruby Port


Over 30 classic Douro grape varieties can be used to make port but only a handful of the best are planted in the Delaforce vineyards, each contributing its unique character and flavor to the blend. These include the Touriga Francesa, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz. The grapes are selected and harvested by hand in mid September and, the case of the Delaforce vineyards, are placed in small trays which keep them in perfect condition during transport to the winery. The taste is smooth and satisfying, with an average age of three years and this Fine Ruby represents very good value in terms of quality and price.
