    Winemaker's Notes:

    Grand Vin de Glenelly is the signature red blend of the estate, the wine has a deep, dark, rich color. The wine offers an elegant complex bouquet developing aromas of cassis, spicy plums with notes of toast in the background. The palate has a great intensity and concentration with fantastic freshness and fine elegant, but well structured tannins.

    Blend: 40% Shiraz, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot, 7% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Grand Vin de Glenelly is a blend of 40% Shiraz, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot and 7% Merlot raised in one-third new oak. It has a slightly muted bouquet with mulberry, blackberry, cedar and dried herbs that are finely tuned and quite Old World in style. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins and brittle blackberry and boysenberry fruit that lead to an attractive, vivacious citrus-driven finish. This is a well-crafted Stellenbosch red.
