Glenelly, Glass Collection Syrah 750ml 2017South Africa, Stellenbosch
'Let's hear it for the 2017 vintage, which has produced a string of very enjoyable reds, even at cheaper prices. This has some clove spice and texture from 60% whole bunches, supple tannins, violet aromas, fine oak and a balanced finish. Drink 2020-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 91/100
'Delicious varietal expression in 2017 given free rein by non-new oaking: mouthwatering savoury mix of white pepper, cinnamon, olive tapenade, plum & salami. Smooth, soft tannins.' – Platter's Guide, 4* (88/100)
Glenelly was established in 2003 with a clear vision to produce long-ageing fine wine. It was started by May de Lencquesaing, previous owner of Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande in Bordeaux. Much work has gone into the vineyards, cellar and winemaking but, more notably, their old-world patience has contributed to the wines. The winery is environmentally friendly and the vineyards are managed with minimal intervention and sustainable techniques.
