The Grand Vin Chardonnay displays a wonderful bright crisp colour. The nose displays vibrant citrus, lime zest and flint with hints of apple with underlying minerality and vanilla butterscotch.

The palate is lush, the creamy texture is underpinned with beautiful mineral notes and hints of toasted almond and vanilla.

The finish is fresh with great mineralaty.

Very dry season with cool conditions during ripening.

Winter in 2011 was dry but cold.

Bud burst was 7 days earlier than usual and it was very even.

Low spring temperatures lead to slow shoot growth.

During flowering there was rain which resulted in week set and loose bunches and increased disease pressure.

Favourable, cool conditions from pea bud to veraison.

A temperature spike during ripening put the vines under water stress.

Harvest was one week head,but finished a day early.

Wine quality was excellent.

Producer Information

The Glenelly Estate is in the Idas Valley, located in Stellenbosch, on the southern slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain.

Its origins date back to the seventeenth century. Simon van der Stel, Governor of the Cape, gave the land to the Huguenot François Villion.

In 1812, the estate passed to Johan Peter de Villiers, and finally in 1911 it became the property of a British Famliy, the Garlicks.

They owned it for 92 years until its purchase in 2003 by May-Eliane de Lencquesaing, who for over 30 years was the owner of the famous Bordeaux Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, Pauillac Grand Cru Classé.
