Ruby Dum is one of the twins of Niepoort's range, the other being Tawny Dee. Both these wines come from the same lot, with the juices being treated differently to produce two rather different styles from the same origin.
Here we have Ruby Dum, a classic ruby port rich in the red and black fruit aromas, a touch of cassis - very much fruit driven. This retains a fantastic drinkability for a fortified wine. Drink this with some blue cheese (Colston Basset bangs). It's such a cliche, but crikey it's good.
