The Junior Ruby
The Junior Ruby undergoes an early filling, and spends the rest of its time in the bottle, where it is protected against outside influences. Through this process, its youthfulness, dark color, freshness and dark fruit aromas and flavours are optimally maintained. The Junior Ruby comes from low yielding old vineyards in the Cima Corgo region of the Douro Valley. The grapes are predominantly trodden in lagares, prior to ageing in large wooden vats at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia.
