Description

"79% CS, 8% M, 8% PV, 5% CF – Deep, dark and broody, this Cape Bordeaux Blend speaks with all the authority and confidence of a 5 star block buster vintage. Brimming with black menthol cassis, boiled black berry sweets, black cherry and tight grained cedar spice, this wine wears a super hero gown of graphite and stony minerality and whispers quality from the moment it hits the glass. Tight, focused and impressively compact, there is a seamless saline black currant balance with linear polished marble tannins and a super intense concentration. This wine represents the culmination of years of winemaking refinement and is without doubt the finest red wine produced to date at the Glenelly Estate revealing the true terroir quality potential of these groomed, premium Stellenbosch vineyards. Drink from release with decanting and over the next 20+ years." 96+/100 Greg Sherwood MW

"What a delight. I've been enthusiastically following the releases of this top wine and I think this is the best yet. Supposedly made to resemble the Bordeaux Lafite Rothschild 1873 – yes, I don't know what that was like either. But the great Madame de Lencquesaing presumably does – and this Bordeaux blend, led by Cabernet Sauvignon, is elegant, coutured, suave and confident, a perfect marriage of oak and dark red fruit going towards black, with salt liquorice and black olives if you don't have a sweet tooth, and that irresistible Bordeaux scent of menthol and graphite with cedar to come in a few years' time." 96/100 points – Oz Clarke
