Description

(90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot)
Glenelly’s flagship wine is one of the finest Cape reds I've tried; elegant, complex, with balance and structure reminiscent of, dare I say it, the finest wines of Bordeaux. Fermentation is with natural yeasts, followed by a short period of skin contact and racked every four months. Maturation is for 24 months in new French oak barrels. A cool winter was followed by a progressively warmer growing season in 2010, and has produced a wine of depth and concentration that will age with grace. Very much an SA First Growth; elegant, complex and getting better with every vintage.

'The 2010 Lady May is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot and sees 100% new oak for 24 months. That wood seems to be deftly absorbed on the nose with precocious black cherry and black currant fruit tinged with cedar. The palate is medium-bodied with dusky dry tannins – a masculine Cabernet Sauvignon with a slightly dry finish. A little tough at the moment, but it should mature nicely. Drink 2014-2020.' 90pts - Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com, Aug. '11
