Post By Dave
Portugal vineyards are brilliant. Having been to the duoro area I really got a taste for white port. When I looked for white port in the U.K. It was difficult to find so I thought I'd give Portugal vineyards a go. It was easy to place an order online and the ability to track its progress is excellent. All my orders have arrived in less than a week .... I think the last one was 4 days ....the order was well packed .....what more can I say ....great service !

Great value for money, we have only tried 3 of the 4 wines we bought but they are varied and tastey, will be buying more. Delivery is slow but they are still deserving of 5 stars

In the mouth, it has a fine balance between sweetness and mature tannins, it is well structured and it has a long finish. Its elegance and liveliness make it the ideal option for those who enjoy young and accessible Porto Wines.

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.
