Lady May 2012, Glenelly

£29.50 per bottle

About this wine

Lady May is Glenelly’s flagship wine, with a South African heartbeat and Bordelais soul.  A blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, the 2012 is more brooding and concentrated compared to the previous vintage.  The nose offers an alluring invitation to black fruit including cassis and blackberries which leads onto more red fruit including raspberries and cranberries.  On the palate, notes of thyme, roast beef and cedar contrast against the blackberry notes.  A wonderful structure with fine grained and well-integrated tannins 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.
