'Bunch pressing, wild yeast ferment (as all) & year in 500L barrels, 17% new, for 2020. Exquisite balance between succulent citrus & yellow stonefruit, creamy texture & tight, dry acid structure. Oak-imparted toasted almond & vanilla veneer is also in sync. Persistent aftertaste.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'Luke O'Cuinneagain sources his Chardonnay from alluvial soils as the foot of Glenelly's famous slope. Barrel-fermented in 18% new 500-litre oak, it has peach, melon and citrus flavours, some cream from partial malolactic and subtle cinnamon spice. Drink 2021-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 90/100

'The Estate Reserve Chardonnay has floral aromas with baked apple, singed citrus rind and toasted chestnuts. A harmony of apple notes, citrus, heather and spiced cinnamon butter are on the palate, all supported by a vivid mineral acidity. The flavours of short crust pastry and toasted fruit linger to a mouthwatering finish.' – Winemaker

Producer information Glenelly was established in 2003 with a clear vision to produce long-ageing fine wine. It was started by May de Lencquesaing, previous owner of Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande in Bordeaux. Much work has gone into the vineyards, cellar and winemaking but, more notably, their old-world patience has contributed to the wines. The winery is environmentally friendly and the vineyards are managed with minimal intervention and sustainable techniques.
