5 Stars 2020 Platter’s South African Wine Guide

Cab-led (40%) 5-way fusion of Bordeaux varieties with shiraz. 14 ***** (95 pts) reprises ripeness & power (14.5% alcohol) of 13 (94 pts), yet great detailing & precision; generous blueberry, dark plum & blackcurrant, with toasty spice (30% new oak) & savouriness on smooth, polished finish.

The Estate Reserve comes mostly from the cooler, east facing slope at Glenelly and is a cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon with 50% Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Fine, elegant and nuanced with cassis, red berry and graphite notes and granular tannins. 2019-2014

 

Winemaker Notes

Glenelly Estate Reserve is the signature red blend of the estate and is based on the classic claret blend from the 1700’s. The 2014 vintage is all about the combination of power and elegance. Rich powerful aromatics of fresh blackberries and blackcurrant initially present themselves with spicy plum and cedar continuing to lead you into the wine. The palate entry is bold and rich with fine tannin supported by the ripe fresh fruit and hints of spice. Very good oak integration with a fresh long finish.
