Lady May 2012, Glenelly – Magnum

£74.50 per bottle

About this wine

Lady May is Glenelly’s flagship wine, with a South African heartbeat and Bordelais soul. Compared to the previous vintages, the 2012 is more brooding and concentrated.  It is intense, deeply coloured and very stylish.  The nose offers an alluring invitation to black fruit like cassis and blackberries which then leads onto more red fruit: raspberries and cranberries.  On the palate, notes of thyme, roast beef and cedar contrast against the blackberry tones.  The tannins are very fine and well integrated and will give this wine considerable ageing potential.  This is premier grand cru classé from The Cape, offering longevity and a determination rarely found at this price point. Stunning in every sense.

Very Limited Stock!
