Glenelly Estate, Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch “The Glass Collection” 2014
Glenelly Estate lies in the Idas Valley in the heart of Stellenbosch, South Africa’s premier wine region, on the southern slopes of the iconic Simonsberg Mountain. It is the home of May de Lencquesaing, previous owner of Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, a classified Second Growth in Pauillac, Bordeaux. Her dream is an ambitious project to achieve the perfect balance of French style and South African terroir. Darkly-colored, it entices with an intense nose of cassis, currants, smoky oak and herbal notes. It’s just shy of full bodied, with saturated black fruits on the palate. The oak is pleasingly subtle. It finishes with excellent length, and the ripe tannins are smooth but firm, nicely supporting the fruit.
