Tasting Notes

THE GLASS COLLECTION CHARDONNAY HAS A BRIGHT AND BRILLIANT COLOUR WITH A SLIGHT GREEN HUE. THIS WINE HAS COMPLEX AROMAS OF CITRUS PEEL, RIPE PEAR, QUINCE AND FLINT. ON THE PALATE, THERE IS A ROUND COMFORTING TEXTURE WITH WONDERFUL LENGTH AND FRESHNESS ALL BALANCED BY INTENSE FRUIT COMPLEXITY.

WINEMAKING
The grapes were lightly crushed and gently pressed. The juice was transferred to
two stainless steel fermenters where it underwent spontaneous fermentation (wild
ferment). The two tanks ran at different temperatures one at 13 degrees and the other
at 18 degrees. The wine was not allowed to go through malolactic fermentation and
was left on the lees until bottling took place.

About Glenelly Winery

Located on the lower slpoes of the Simonsberg mountains, in the heart of Stellenbosch, South Africa. It was purchased in 2003 by May de Lenqueasing, former owner of the iconic Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande in Francec.

The Glass collection range was created after May’s lifelong passion for the art of glassmaking.  The quality of the Chardonnay planted on the right terroir, enhanced by our winemaker’s skills, results in a complex and subtle spectrum of aromas and flavor. Fermented and left on the lees in stainless steel tanks.
