The Glenelly Estate Reserve Red is the estate's signature red blend. It is a reference for the old claret styles where Syrah was blended together with the traditional Bordeaux varieties.

The 2014 vintage is all about elegance with underlying power. Bold aromatics of blackberries, cranberry and blackcurrant are followed by hints of savoury, spicy plum with touches of cedar and floral tones. The palate entry has good richness with fine tannin supported by the ripe fresh fruit and hints of spice. Very balanced oak integration with a fresh long finish.

Tasting notes:
40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Syrah, 18% Cabernet Franc, 18% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot

‘Cab-led (40%) 5-way fusion of Bordeaux varieties with shiraz. 2014 reprises ripeness & power (14.5% alcohol) of 2013 (4.5 stars, 94 pts), yet great detailing & precision; generous blueberry, dark plum & blackcurrant, with toasty spice (30% new oak) & savouriness on smooth, polished finish.’ – Platter’s Guide 2020, 5* (95/100)

Winemaking:
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 during fermentation, followed by 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.
