Tasting Notes:

Glenelly Estate Reserve is the signature red blend of the estate, rich powerful aromatics of red fruits, plum and blackberries initially present themselves, followed hints of savoury, spicy Syrah with touches of cedar and floral tones. The palate entry has good richness and ripe fresh fruit and pepper-spice supported by a firm, balanced tannins. Very good oak intergration wiht fresh long finish.

"Since my childhood in the heart of Bordeaux’ finest vineyards till today, I have travelled the world and discovered the amazing diversity of terroirs. On my first visit to Stellenbosch I knew that this was where I wanted to fulfil my dream of starting a new adventure outside of France. In 2003, and after visiting many vineyards, I recognised the amazing potential of Glenelly Estate. I also believed in continuing the French heritage of wine making in South Africa going back more than three centuries. My vision is to establish Glenelly as a world-class estate, producing award-winning wines with power, elegance and balance.” May-Eliane de Lencquesaing

The grapes were hand sorted and lightly crushed into stainless steel fermentation tanks. They were given a cold soak for three days before allowing the natural fermentation to start. Three pump-overs a day were done on the tanks during fermentation, after which they underwent extended skin contact for 2-3 weeks.

The wine was placed in French oak barrels to undergo malolactic fermentation. Matured for 18 months in French oak and racked on average every four months.
