RUBY

Offley RUBY

Tasting Notes

This young and accessible Porto wine has a well-defined red ruby hue and lively aroma reminiscent of red fruit, with more complex notes from the oak ageing. On the palate, a fine balance between sweetness and mature tannins, a good structure and a long finish.

Varieties

Primarily Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amaerla, and Tinta Cao. This wine is a blend of these and other red vine varieties that flourish in the Douro.

Technical Notes

Produced in the traditional Porto wine method. Ready for drinking; does not require decanting. Aged in oak wood casks, as essential element of traditional Porto winemaking, in Offley’s centuries-old lodges.

Food Pairing

A versatile wine that goes well with cheese or assorted desserts, including fresh fruit tarts. Served on its own, chilled or with ice, it is perfect as an aperitif or evening drink.

Did you know fact

Founded in London in 1737 by William Offley, initially as wine merchants, Offley was soon exporting wines and later began to produce Porto Wine. A decisive moment in its development was the arrival of Joseph James Forrester as partner in the company - a charismatic man who would later earn the title Baron of Forrester, granted him by the King of Portugal in 1855. He played a key role in expanding Offley and the Porto Wine industry in the Nineteenth Century.
