Tasting Notes:

Lady May is Glenelly's Flagship Estate Wine. Elegant and complex, the wine develops flavours of blackcurrant, raspberry and delicate spices. Very fresh, the evolution of the wine introduces flavours of mint reflecting the specific terroir of Glenelly. Deep and perfectly balanced, the wine has an exquisite structure with velvety tannins and a very good aging capability.

"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 lightly crushed into stainless steel tanks . The fermentation was done by natural yeast with a mixture of rack, returns and open pump overs. We did post fermentation skin contact during 2-3 weeks and pressed gently. Malolactic fermentation occurred in French oak barrels. The wine stayed on the lees for a long period of time before racking. Raked on average every 4 months.

Matured during 24 months in new French oak barrels. During the aging, the wine is clari ed with natural egg whites, and bottled later.
