Interesting start to the day tasting all the new vintages of Glenelly Estate from Stellenbosch, made by the cool dude Luke O’Cuinneagain, at an exclusive 67 Pall Mall private members club event in London.
Personally, I think the packaging is a major step up, smart, fresh, yet elegantly classical… not unlike the new 2014 red vintages… that includes the impressive new Cabernet Franc 2014 single varietal wine.
These are classic reds for cellaring. Plenty of spicy, gravelly tannins, dark black berry fruit, old world tension and balance. Definitely worth looking these wines up!
