Glenelly Estate Reserve Chardonnay
An elegant oaked Chardonnay which is full of intense fruit and subtle creaminess.
The Glenelly Estate in Stellenbosch was taken over in 2003 by the former owner of the famous Chateau Pichon Longueville in Bordeaux. Since then Madame May de Lencquesaing along with her winemaker, Luke O'Cuinneagain, has been producing some great wines that have been made with a unique combination of French traditional winemaking techniques and the South African terroir. This Chardonnay is vibrant and full of citrus fruit, with a slight creamy oakiness coming from the 10 months spent in French oak barrels.
