Product Overview

Located on the southern slopes of the Simonsberg, Glenelly is owned by May-Eliane de Lencquesaing, Bordeaux doyenne and former owner of Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande. The 2016 Glenelly "Glass Collection" Unoaked Chardonnay is so named because of the owner's famous glass collection and museum that's open to the public at the winery. This wine is wild fermented in steel without any malo and aged on the lees to enhance mid-palate density and mouthfeel. It has complex aromas of citrus peel, pear drop, stem ginger, and honeysuckle. On the palate, there is a beautiful, round texture with wonderful length and intense fruit complexity.

Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay
Appellation: Stellenbosch WO, South Africa
Aging: Stainless steel only
Residual Sugar: 1.7 g/L
