Descended from the fiery ruby Porto wines originally shipped by George Sandeman in 1790, Sandeman Ruby Porto is still made traditionally, to be rich and robust, yet with a special depth of flavour and the finesse, achieved by expertly blending wines from Sandeman's large and varied stock.
Brilliant red ruby in colour, with clean aromas of red fruits, plums and strawberries, Sandeman Ruby Porto has full rich flavours and is very well balanced. Rich, round, balanced in the mouth, with overt flavours of fresh plums and red fruits.
Traditionally matched with full flavoured and creamy cheeses, Sandeman Ruby Porto combines well with chocolate desserts and fruit pies
Does not require decanting. Serve in a large glass. Can be served slightly chilled, over ice, or with a splash of soda. Also as "Hot Porto".
Should be stored standing, avoid intense light and maintain a constant temperature (10Âº-20Âº)
Wine EnthusiastSupple and fruity, this is a decent value in basic Port. Prune and plum flavors show a hint of raisining, but it finishes balanced and smooth.
Wine SpectatorLean and restrained, with focused spicy plum and chocolate flavors, gaining some interest in the tension between sweetness and alcohol. Despite some a ppealing flavors, it's an unusual style that won't appeal to everyone.
