This is the second tier red from Glenelly, made from Syrah blended with a mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Elegant, focused style, black fruit with clarrty cigar both as well as good dense sweet black fruit. L&S (Nov 2019)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

A blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 15% Syrah, 11% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2013 Estate Reserve Red offers deep red and black fruit aromas and a dusty herbal edge and elements of graphite. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is clean and has a blackberry essence, dusty mineral core and elements of smoked herbs across the mid-palate. Concluding with a drying and tannic finish, the wine is food-friendly and offers great balance at an amazing price. Just over 10,000 cases made. Well done.

Glenelly Estate

Glenelly Estate in the Idas Valley, Stellenbosch, is the home estate of May de Lencquesaing, previous owner of Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, Bordeaux. This is no retirement home, but an ambitious project to make serious wines in one of the Cape's most beautiful and best sited vineyard areas. May has recruited Luke O'Cuinneagain as winemaker, whose career includes Chateau Fieuzal, Angelus, Screaming Eagle and five years at Rustenberg before joining Glenelly. He is assisted by Adi Badenhost as consultant winemaker. There are three ranges of wine made at the estate. The 'Glass Collection'; premium varietals from Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot and Chardonnay. The 'Grand Vin': the signature blend of the estate, using Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, aged 18 month in oak barrels. 'Lady May'; the flagship wine made of the best Cabernet Sauvignon, aged 24 months in new oak.
