"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

Winter was late, but cold enough to break dormancy. Very low rainfall hence extremely low soil moisture levels which meant irrigation was key to relieving stress in the vineyard.

The grapes were whole bunch pressed. The juice was transferred to new and second fill 500L blond toasted barrels after a brief settling. It was naturally fermented.

Left for 10 months on its lees. Total time in barrel was 11 months.
