    In 2003, May-Eliane de Lencquesaing, then owner of the famous Pauillac second growth Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse De Lalande in Bordeaux, bought the estate and brought a lifetime of wine knowledge and passion to Stellenbosch.  Formerly labelled as Grand Vin de Glenelly, this is the great value, second wine from Glenelly – the little sister of Glenelly Lady May.  It is made with a Bordeaux-meets-the-Rhône combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

    The Glenelly Estate Reserve Red Blend is all about elegance with underlying power. Bold aromas of blackberries, cranberry and blackcurrant are followed by hints of savoury, spicy plum with touches of cedar. A fresh long finish.

    Wine Style Meter

     

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
