Winemaking:
It is produced by the traditional Porto Wine method. The hand-picked grapes undergo stalk-removal and crushing before fermentation, under controlled temperature, with skin maceration so as to extract the best components. The addition of wine alcohol at the ideal moment sets the balance between the wine´s body and bouquet. This moment is chosen by the winemaker following strict control of fermentation temperatures and densities, the later depending on the vine variety, maturation stage and the final sweetness required. After the harvest, the wines remain in the Douro until the following Spring, when they are taken to V.N.Gaia and enter Offley´s centuries-old lodges for ageing in oak wood casks, as required by Porto Wine traditional ageing system. Throughout the years the wines are carefully tasted and analysed by the oenology team who also makes all necessary corrections and prepares the final blend so as to keep Offley Porto Ruby´s style and character. The wines selected are usually between 2 and 5 years of age, which makes it possible to obtain a fresh and young wine with an average age of 3 years. The final blend is filtered and cold-stabilised prior to bottling.

Grape Varieties:
Touriga Franca,Tinta Roriz,Tinta Amarela,Tinto Cão

15,5 pts Revista de Vinhos - Very concentrated aroma, with intense mature red fruit aromas, hints of violets and "esteva" (a local Portuguese resinous bush). Great structure, full bodied, matured round tannins, with a long persistent finish.
