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 Glass Collection Syrah has a wonderful dark and rich colour with deep purple undertones, yet there is still brilliance to the wine. The aromatics of the wine are intense with floral tones such as jasmin and violet coming through with white pepper, spicy plum and a dark berry core. The palate is well balanced and textured with soft round tannins and a pure fruit core shining through.
