Owned by May de Lencquesaing, former owner of Bordeaux Château Pichon-Lalande, Glenelly offers a Bordeaux-inspired structure with fine New World richness. Winemaking at Glenelly, situated in Idas Valley, Stellenbosch is considered an art form and 2009 saw the inauguration, on this 128ha estate, of a winery which is a stellar example of modern methods, design and environmental awareness. The Estate Reserve is Glenellys signature red blend. The wine has a deep, dark and rich colour. It offers an elegant, complex bouquet developing aromas of cassis and spicy plums, cedar and tobacco with notes of toast in the background. The palate has a great intensity and concentration with fantastic freshness and fine, elegant, but well-structured tannins which lead to a long, luscious finish. A beautifully made wine.
