Van Zellers Rufo 2008 Douro Red is a fresh and vibrant wine, with bright dark red colour, a very balanced and fresh concentration of mature red fruit aromas, with a very typical predominance of blackberries, cherries and plums.
A powerful, spicy, sweet-fruited wine that is rich and concentrated. Ripe plums and dark chocolate work together with a firm tannic core. A dense wine for aging.
Cristiano Van Zeller, previous owner and director of Quinta do Noval, is launching a range of new ports under the De Zellaer label. Zellaer is the medieval spelling of the name Van Zeller.
The Ports come partly from Cristiano's own vineyards in the Douro, Quinta Vale da Mina and Quinta Vale D. Maria, and are partly selected from special stocks in Vila Nova de Gaia that are made available to Cristiano.
