Quinta de la Rosa's Ruby Port is unique in that it comes from A graded grapes all grown on the Quinta. Most other ruby blends come from further down the river nearer Regua where there is higher rainfall and most grapes are B to D quality so the resulting port tends to be less concentrated. Many customers told them that their ruby was too good to be called a ruby port' so we christened it with the name - Lote 601 - taken from lote or blending number we use for the ruby. The Ruby is blended from their stocks of Port stored in large 'tonels' or vats to give a young, fruity, vibrant wine with an average age of 3-4 years. The blend will always have the same style from year to year. Unlike most port shippers, all products are stored and bottled in the Douro (at La Rosa and not Porto), allowing full traceability and ensuring quality from grape to bottle. This Port has been lightly filtered and does not require decanting, delicious with dessert or cheese. Sustainable agriculture used.
