'Exquisite blend 4 Bordeaux varieties, mostly cab & merlot (35/30) plus usual telling syrah (15%) giving leather, dark spice & black pepper notes to deeply satisfying 2015. Dark berries & crushed herbs, cigarbox perfume from French oak, 31% new. Like 2014 (5 stars, 95 pts), savoury, ageworthy.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'Were it not for the presence of 15% Syrah in the mix, this would be a four-way Bordeaux blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with 10% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Structured, stylish, intense, with plenty of vibrancy and ageing potential, layers of plum, mulberry and blackcurrant leaf flavours, some fresh herbs and fine, granular tannins. Drink 2022-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 94/100

'Deep, inky and dark with earthy, spicy aromatics and hints of licorice, tar, and Provençal herbs. Drinking well now.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 90/100 (Silver) 'The Estate Reserve is the signature red blend of Glenelly. It combines the rich and savoury character of the Syrah (pepper and spices) with Cabernet Sauvignon (blackberries, cherries and floral spices) and with touches of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The blend is different with every vintage. The wine offers fine tannins supported by ripe fresh fruit and hints of spices.' – 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.
