|Availability:||In stock (8)|

Deep, rich, bright colour. The nose entices with its garrigue character of dried thyme, oregano. With black cherry and pencil lead in the background. The palate is dominated by aromas of dark cherries, blueberries and graphite, which gives it great interest. The tannins are silky and the finish is long and smooth.
Owned by May de Lencquesaing, former owner of Bordeaux' Château Pichon-Lalande, Glenelly offers a Bordeaux-inspired structure with fine New World richness.
The grapes were lightly crushed into stainless steel tanks. Post fermentation, there was skin contact for 2-3 weeks before it was pressed gently. Malolactic fermentation occurred in French oak barrels which were racked on average every 4 months; a total of 12 months’ ageing took place.
Suggested food and wine pairing: Chicken,pork, roast or grilled beef
