Tasting Notes

Grand Vin de Glenelly is the signature red blend of the estate. The wine has a deep, dark and rich colour. The wine offers an elegant complex bouquet developing aromas of cassis and spicy plums, cedar and blond 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.

Food Pairing

Stews, steak, bold fish dishes, braai meat

Vinification

The grapes were hand sorted and lightly crushed into stainless steel fermentation tanks. They were given a cold soak for three days before allowing the natural fermentation to start. Three pump overs a day were done on the tanks during fermentation, after which they underwent extended skin contact for 2-3 weeks. The wine was placed in French oak barrels to undergo malolactic fermentation. Matured for 18 months in French oak and racked on average every four months.
