Lady May is Glenelly’s flagship estate wine.
The 2013 is a worthy successor to the 2012, this top-end Stellenbosch cabernet living up to the Bordeaux pedigree of its legendary owner, May de Lencquesaing, sappy and refined with distinct minerality and etched with underlining fruit power, it is fresh, stylish and subtle with dense age-worthy tannins and a long, tight finish.
Aromas: Cassis, blackcurrant, dark cherry, a touch of graphite and delicate spices.
Palate: Fresh and vibrant with flavours of fynbos. An exquisite structure with fine velvety tannins.
Winemaking: Hand-sorted grapes, spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic in French oak barrels, matured for 24 months.
Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon with a dash of other Bordeaux varietals.
