Winemaker Notes

Grand Vin de Glenelly is the estate's signature red blend. It exhibits great intensity and complexity, with finegrained tannins that are firm yet elegant. The rich, savory character of Shiraz is enhanced by lush, concentrated flavors of blackberry, cherry and cassis, supported by floral tones and notes of tobacco and spice.

44% Shiraz, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

Cropped at 44 hectoliter per hectare, the 2007 Grand Vin de Glenelly is a blend of 44% Shiraz, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot raised for 18 months in one-third new oak. It has a very ripe, broody bouquet with blackberry, iodine, cassis and a touch of brine that handles the oak very well. The palate is medium-bodied with good acidity and very impressive harmony, the oak is seamlessly integrated and leads to a very seductive, tobacco and spice-tinged finish. This should age well. Drink now-2017.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Good bright red-ruby color. Black plum, menthol, graphite, mint and licorice on the nose. Broad, juicy and moderately intense, but with sneaky depth to the flavors of musky berries, mint, leather and underbrush. Finishes with slightly dry, firm tannins. Elegant and distinctly Old World in style.
