Situated in the Groenfontein Valley not far from Calitzdorp and the stunning Swartberg Pass, Peter and Yvonne are living their dream of handcrafting port-style wines and a stunning red made from a blend of Portuguese varieties. The main challenges to making wine here in this beautiful valley is from the competition for grapes by both baboons and birds! Extensive netting for the birds and electric fences for the baboons helps.
Brand new to Newton Wines and the UK.

Their story

Peter and Yvonne Bayly headed into this secluded valley over a decade ago to fulfil their lifelong dream of crafting artisanal wines and “live free-range” in one of the most secluded areas of South Africa.

Peter Bayly III 2012

PB III bottle pic

The Peter Bayly III, a blend of three Portuguese grape varieties – Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barocca & Souzao was borne from a spark of curiosity and the fact that no one had tried to blend these varieties together as a table wine in South Africa yet. The III is special due to the fact that the vineyard is located high up in the foot hills of the Swartberg and planted on shale with very little top soil, the vines struggle their way through to find water nutrients. This unique location allows for a long slow ripening season, resulting in concentrated fruit and an elegant wine with relatively low alcohol, good acidity and superb structure. This will drink perfectly with roasts, hearty Mediterranean dishes, and most importantly, a good glass to enjoy and share with friends, family or passers-by. This wine has good potential to age gracefully.

Grapes: Touriga Naçional, Tinta Barocca, Souzão.     Alcohol: 13.5%

Peter Bayly Cape White N/V

This dry Cape White Port is a blend of the 2010 and 2011 vintages and a small portion of the 2008/2009 blend added in, produced from 100% Chenin Blanc grown in the deep red fertile soils of the Calitzdorp valley. Only 1800 bottles were produced, using artisanal vinification techniques – such as the use of lagares, manual pigeage and maturation in seasoned barrique.

A shy bouquet of roast almond, crushed oats and hints of orange blossom and lemon rind, unfolds into an ethereal, complex and lengthy palate. Peach pip, dried apricot, Seville marmalade, roast almonds and hints of spice taunt the senses, while the Port ends with a characteristically dry finish.

The Bayly’s Cape White Port is best served well chilled, and can be paired with a myriad of dishes, such Moroccan lamb tajine with saffron infused rice; slow roasted organic chicken with roast potatoes, green beans and vine-roasted tomatoes or a sumptuous Canard a l’Orange. Alternatively serve well-chilled with a selection of fine cheeses, olives, dried tomatoes, cured meats and farm style bread.

Grapes: Chenin Blanc, 375ml     Alcohol: 17%

Peter Bayly Cape Vintage 2009

Peter Bayly Cape Vintage for Newton Wines

Crafted from Touriga Naçional, Tinta Barocca 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 2009 amounts to 6200 half-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.

The Peter Bayly Cape Vintage Port 2009 can be drunk now or over the next two decades. This wine is a perfect accompaniment to many dishes or alternatively, serve this fine Cape Vintage Port with whichever rustic dish you love most, or crack open a bottle with a bunch of good friends and family and enjoy it with a selection of mature cheeses, cured meats, dried fruits from the Klein Karoo, green fig preserve and crackers or farm style bread. This is a wine meant for jovial enjoyment.

Peter Bayly LBV

LBV or Late Bottled Vintage is the perfect combination of the power & prowess of a Vintage “Port”, but with the immediate accessibility and drinkability that only results from an extended maturation in old oak barrels. An inky black elixir with brick red edge, this wine greets one with a melange of bright mulling spice, brandied cherry, prune, molasses and fynbos aromas. The palate is lusciously smooth with gentle warming spirit, layers of black hedgerow fruits, kirsch, Wilson’s toffee, allspice, hints of caramel and toasted almond.

An ideal winter warmer, but also a perfect accompaniment to roast lamb or pork, Moroccan lamb tagine, aromatic Cape Malay dishes & fine charcuterie. Alternatively, enjoy with mature hard cheeses, an assortment of nuts, decadent dark chocolate desserts or fine coffee.

Grapes: Touriga Naçional, Tinta Barocca, Souzão.     Alcohol: 18.5%
