Glenelly Estate Reserve is the signature red blend of the estate hermitage, going back to the old claret styles when Syrah was added to the traditional Bourdeaux varieties. Grapes were hand sorted and lightly crushed into steel fermentation tanks. after natural fermentation, the wine was placed in French oak barrels to undergo malolactic fermentation maturing for 18 months in French oak and racked on average every four months.
Tasting notes: rich powerful aromatics of red fruits, plum and blackberries initially present themselves, followed hints of savoury, spicy Syrah with touches of cedar and floral tones. The palate entry has good richness of ripe fresh fruit and pepper-spice supported by a firm, balanced tannins. Very good oak integration with a fresh long finish.
