Nice ruby color. Expressive nose, combining red fruit aromas (raspberry, blackberry) and burnt notes. After a frank and silky attack, mouth appears balanced. Fine tannins, a smooth oak and a fruity aromatic return give much elegance to this bottle.
An elegant finish completes the charm of the Château de Saint- Pey 2015.
Chateau de Saint-Pey
Memorably described at a tasting as `1/2 Tawny Port, 1/2 Vin Santo, and 1/2 Amontillado Sherry, and yes I know that makes 3`, this is exquisite.
Made from the Narince grape (incidentally the most widely plant vine in Turkey, but mainly for it`s edible vine leaves) the wine is fortified and then spends 12 years maturing barrel before bottling. An initial whiff of rancio notes leads into a palate bursting with sweet baked apple and before the sugar becomes overpowering a long dry finish emerges. Trust me,even a banquet, not a drop of this will be left undrunk...
