Borges Ruby Port
Sociedade dos Vinhos Borges was founded in 1884 by two brothers, Francisco and Antonio Borges. In 1998, Borges became a member of the JMV group, a group of Portuguese investors. It is now owned by a coffee producer and much of the vineyards and supplies have been sold to Taylor's well-known port home. A new winemaker is now at the helm, coming from Taylor's! With the arrival of the new winemaker, the style of the port is changing from a more traditional 'tawny' style, which requires a long ripening to a richer, more 'ruby' fruit style.
The Tawny port of Borges Porto is a blend of the Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Cão. In contrast to the Tawny, this Borges is more youthful red with a pronounced fruit-rich nose with a hint of chocolate. Smooth attack, full, fruity, sweet, raisins, beautiful chocolate bitters. It is therefore not surprising that this Borges Port Ruby goes very well with spicy cheeses and blue molds, desserts with chocolate.
Founded in 1884 by brothers António and Francisco, Sociedade dos Vinhos Borges quickly became one of the most important wine companies in Portugal, the result of a combination of tradition, age-old knowledge, dedication to the land and passion for wine. Conscious of the need to control the production process from the moment the vineyard is planted, Borges is present in the main regions defined by Portugal with four own and reference quintas: in Vinho Verde, Quinta de Simaens and Quinta do Ôro; in Douro, Quinta da Soalheira and in Dão, Quinta de São Simão da Aguieira.
