The Ruby Select Reserve from Taylor's Port from the Portuguese wine-growing region DOC Douro is produced from the grape varieties Tinta Cao, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barocca, Touriga Francesa and Touriga Nacional.
In the glass this port shimmers in a deep ruby red with garnet highlights. The bouquet is carried by ripe aromas of dark berries - blackberry, elderberry and blackcurrant come to the fore - accompanied by a hint of liquorice. On the palate, this port wine has a full-bodied, opulent body with a firm structure. The dark berry fruit of the nose combines with notes of ripe cherries and harmonises wonderfully with the well-balanced acidity. The finish has a pleasant length.
Vinification of Taylor's Port Ruby Select Reserve
Traditionally, the grapes for this port are harvested by hand at Taylor's and for the most part completely destemmed in the wine cellar. The grapes are crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Today, Taylor's Port uses state-of-the-art technology to ensure that the cap is pressed down regularly, allowing the variety of aromas, colour pigments and fullness of flavour to pass into the mash. As soon as half of the sugar is fermented, the fermentation process is stopped by the addition of high-proof distillate. This preserves the natural residual sweetness of this wine. Finally, this port wine matures in large wooden barrels until it is filled onto the bottle.
