Glenelly Lady May 2017

Their most highly rated release yet!

'Attractively fragrant, Margaux-esque delicacy and graceful precision …. This is class personified.’Greg Sherwood MW, 97/100

'This should mature magnificently.’Christian Eedes,, 97/100

'From the exceptional 2017 vintage, this is a distinguished, patrician wine where everything is in place.’Tim Atkin MW, 97/100

Firmly entrenched as one of our finest Bordeaux reds, the 2017 Glenelly Lady May is the last of the major releases from the exceptional 2017 vintage. This is a wine of grace, finesse and persistent power. It's still wonderfully youthful, promising a long life ahead.

This wine ‘has absolutely captured the truest essence of the 2017 vintage with its extreme purity’ and ‘weightless fruit concentration’, notes Greg Sherwood MW.

The 2017 is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, with 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. As per previous releases, it was tasted blind alongside international benchmarks and comfortably held its own next to wines that are three to five times the price! This is phenomenal value.

Glenelly was acquired in 2003 by Madame May de Lencquesaing of Bordeaux’s Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande. Her vision was to transform the property into one of the finest in Stellenbosch. Glenelly has repaid this faith and stands tall as a leading producer on the slopes of the magnificent Simonsberg.
