Peter Bayly Cape Vintage 2015
About the Wine
Crafted from Touriga Naçional, Tinta Barroca and Souzão, the Duoro’s quintessential Port varietals and utilizing artisanal winemaking techniques; including natural fermentation, foot-treading, basket pressing and maturation in seasoned large casks for eighteen months prior to hand bottling unfiltered and unfined. The total production of the Peter Bayly’s Cape Vintage Port 2015 amounts to 1200half-bottles or a total of eight barrels.
A pitch black centre and garnet hued rim invites one into a bouquet bursting with aromas of black hedgerow fruits, plum, “fynbos”, mulling spices and undertones of new leather, cacao, liquorice and brandied apricots. Black cherry, macerated brambles, plump fresh plums, cracked pepper, all-spice, fynbos, liquorice and “meaty” undertones all vie for attention from the taste buds. The palate is complex, dense and the finish is, characteristic of only the finest Cape Vintage Port, dry and endless with the lingering twang of liquorice and spicy brandied fruits.
