Glenelly, Glass Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml 2016South Africa, Stellenbosch
This classic Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from various blocks of vines on the estate, giving it complexity and balance. Youthful, leafy and very pure, with blackcurrant pastille fruit, tangy acidity and the fine tannins that are the hallmark of the glass collection wines.
The grapes were lightly crushed into stainless steel tanks. The fermentation was done by natural yeast with a mixture of rack and returns and open pump overs. Post fermentation skin contact for 2-3 weeks and pressed gently. Malolactic fermentation occurred in French oak barrels. Racked on average every 4 months. Matured during 12 months in oak.
'The 2016 Glass Collection Cabernet Sauvignon was matured in 15% new oak for 12 months. It has a little more mintiness on the nose compared to the previous vintage and is perhaps a touch more showy. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin and plenty of tobacco-tinged black fruit, and quite saline toward the finish. This is a worthy follow-up to the 2015.' – Neal Martin, Vinous.com, 89/100
