Winemaker's Notes:

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.

About Cristiano Van Zeller:

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. Cristiano has tried to move away from the mainstream port styles, offering special ports like the Unfiltered Reserve from his own vineyards and his personal Selection Tawny. The LBV comes from his own Quinta Do Vale Da Mina and in good years Vintage Port, from both his quintas will be produced. Some outstanding red table wines from the single quintas are made.
