This wine has been aged four years before bottling. Mainly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão and Sousão grapes have been used for this port and all grapes are grown at Quinta do Pégo’s A classified vineyards in the Douro Valley in Portugal.
This elegant port has nice ruby colour and it shows delicate aromatic intensity with ripe fruits, floral notes and spices. The taste is fresh and presents red fruit, plums and wild plants. Good freshness, silky tannins and good acidity provide perfect harmony and balance, and the port has an appealing, intense and persistent finish. The taste is just as good as many vintage ports.
This port is ready to drink now if you want a young, concentrated and very fruity taste. But if you prefer a more mature and soft port, you should wait a couple of years – and then remember that decanting is necessary in order to avoid the natural depôt which arises because the wine is unfiltered. That is one of the reasons why it is possible to obtain this extremely high quality.
This port is perfect as an ”after-dinner-drink”, but you can also enjoy Quinta do Pégo Late Bottled Vintage 2015 with almost all kinds of cheese, chocolate, desserts and candied fruit. Serve it slightly chilled or at temperature between 7ºC and 13ºC.
