'Produced in a vintage that Luke O'Cuinneagain describes as 'spectacular', this is a nuanced, well-balanced Cabernet Franc that wouldn't look out of place in the Loire Valley. Subtle, leafy and floral with adroitly handled 25% new wood and a long, refreshing finish. Drink 2020-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 92/100

'Less herbal than previous, 2017 has bright fruit notes layered with violets, crushed herbs & tealeaves. Crunchy, medium-bodied, with lingering savoury/spicy farewell.' – Platter's Guide, 4*

'The wine displays a deep rich bright colour. The nose entices with its garrigue character of dried thyme, oregano and Cape Fynbos, with black cherry and pencil lead in the background. The palate is dominated by dark cherries, blueberries and graphite, which gives it great interest. The tannins are silky and the finish is long and smooth.' – 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.
