Lady May is Glenelly’s Flagship Estate Wine, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot. The nose is opulent with red rather than black fruits. Tea leaf, roast beef and thyme notes contrast the intense raspberry mélange. The palate offers no less character, with powerful chewy tannins and a silky savoury finish. Seamless oak (from its 24 month ageing) gives a hint of spice and support for the medium to full-body. This impressive wine will age well for a decade or so.
John Platter 5*, Decanter 95 points.
