- The LBV category was developed to satisfy the demand for a high quality ready to drink alternative to vintage port for everyday consumption. Unlike vintage port, which is bottled after only two years in wood and ages in bottle, LBV is bottled after four to six years and is ready to drink when bottled.
- Rich, lightly perfumed, raspberry aroma. On the mouth; smooth, silky, deliciously fresh sweet raspberry fruit flavours. Lovely quality and intensity of fruit flavours.
- An attractive very fresh well balanced wine.

TASTING NOTES:
Rich, lightly perfumed, raspberry aroma. On the mouth smooth, silky, deliciously fresh sweet raspberry fruit flavours. Lovely quality and intensity of fruit. An attractive very fresh well balanced wine.
- Winemaker: Jorge Moreira
- Winemaking: 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 flavour 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.
- Grape Varieties: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz.
- Food Pairing: Serve with blue cheese, mature cheddar, nuts, and chocolate desserts.
- Store and Serve Advices: Store bottles on their sides in a cool place (12ºC to 14ºC) away from direct light. Serve at 17-18ºC. Drink when released.

4 /5

The Delaforce Fine Ruby Port is a vigorous and full bodied young fortified wine, full of intense flavours of cherry and blackcurrant.

Aged for three years in oak vats, it is smooth and round on the palate while retaining a full body and firm structure.

An excellent Port to enjoy with rich cheeses or as a delicious finish to the meal.

Grapes:          Malvasia, Rabigato 

Region:          Portugal / Douro / Tua

Winemaker:   Nicholas Delaforce

Notes:            Pale in colour and medium sweetness. This white port has pleasantly fruity aromas and flavours of smooth ripe fruit which has great length. The unusual pale colour will remain over a long period.

Serve:           14c as an excellent Port to enjoy with rich cheeses or as a delicious finish to the meal.

ABV:              20%
