Type: White Wine Grape(s): Chardonnay Wine Region: South Africa
The Glass Collection Chardonnay has a bright and brilliant colour with a slight green hue and complex aromas of citrus peel, pear drop, stem ginger and honeysuckle. On the palate there is a round, comforting texture with wonderful length and intense fruit complexity.
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 and gently pressed. The juice was transferred to two stainless steel fermenters where it underwent a spontaneous wild fermentation.
Suggested food and wine pairing: It is also ideal with flaky white fish.
