Lady May 2015, Glenelly

£35.95 per bottle

About this wine

The South African 2015 vintage has been much lauded as the vintage of the decade, if not the finest in living memory. We have been eagerly anticipating the release of Glenelly’s 2015 Lady May, one of the few wineries to hold back release of their premier wine until it has some bottle age.

Lady May is Glenelly’s flagship Estate wine.  The 2015 Bordeaux blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc,11% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot pays tribute to the pedigree of its legionary owner, May de Lencquesaing.  Balanced, refined, mineral and etched with underlying fruit power – this wine is fresh, stylish and subtle with dense age worthy tannins and a long tight finish.

Ageing potential: Very good ageing capacity
