Riebeek Cape Ruby Port
Riebeek Cellars
South Africa - Western Cape - Coastal Region - Swartland

The bright, dark Riebeek Cape Ruby is a fortified wine, made in the style of a ruby port, primarily from Tourig. The flavors are opulent with ripe fruit, chocolate and interesting nuances of spice on the nose and a palate that follows through smoothly with a lingering aftertaste.

Available in gift sets (1 bottle + 2 glasses)

Coastal Region - Swartland
Wine Type
85% Touriga Nacional and 15% Shiraz
Cold-soaked overnight, then inoculated with selected yeast. Wine was pumped over with force to get enough extraction; at 12 degrees C. The wine was racked from the skins and fortified with a mixture of wine and brandy spirits. New vintage Port wine is blended with older vintage Port wine and matured in 300 litre older French barrels. 50% aged in small barrels for two years.

iwinereview"This wine from South Africa’s Swartland region offers the rich aromas and flavors of a good quality Ruby Port at a very reasonable price. It offers vibrant aromas and generous, ripe flavors of dark cherry, chocolate, and tobacco complemented by savory notes. It has just the right tannic firmness and a long, rich finish. Made in the style of a Ruby Port from Touriga Nacional and Shiraz grapes, half of which was aged in barriques for 2 years."
