Glenelly Merlot and Syrah 2017 and Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Glenelly Estate wines are situated just on the eastern edge of Stellenbosch. The owners of Glenelly also own a little Chateau in Bordeaux called Pichon Comtesse. No biggie! I think that speaks volumes for the confidence in the terroir of South Africa. I love this and hope everyone can be as supportive of the wine community in South Africa.

Glass Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
An uncomplicated Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. Expect those classic green mint and blackcurrant notes to come through. It has been described as elegant with dried herbs and red and blackberries on the nose.
Neal Martin an expert of Bordeaux wines said this about Glenelly - "For under $25 per bottle, one has to ask why you would bother with Bordeaux?" Decanter wine magazine awarded this wine 93 points! It punches well above it's price tag.
Glass Collection Merlot 2017
A single variety Merlot aged in French oak for 12 months. Dark fruits and chocolate notes with a little hint of spiciness, cherries - all those luxury types of things you associate with Merlot. Rainfall in 2017 was 60mm less than 2016 and almost 180mm less than 2018, so concentrated fruit is the result for 2017.
Glenelly Glass Collection Syrah 2017
Syrah, Shiraz is the same grape. Let's not complicate this. You are still going to get those hints of white pepper, cinnamon and dark fruits. Someone described that they got bacon on the palate, I am going to ask everyone I share this with if they get bacon. If you do, let us know. Single variety Merlot aged in French oak for 12 months.
