2013 Estate Reserve Glenelly, Stellenbosch
Dispatched W/C 18th October
A quick swish and you are greeted by a beautifully pure nose, with fresh aromas of dark fruit, delicate, crushed herb and a graphite core, it's very delicate and seductive. It's worth spending a little time admiring the aromatic experience.
The palate is elegant and poised, sweet, ripe blackcurrant dominates initially which evolves into delicate plum with a hint of minerality, there's a herbaceous edge and a touch of woodsmoke in the background. The finish is lengthy and elegant, with a fine tannic grip which has been tempered from 18-months resting in fine French oak barrel, followed by further aging at the estate.
This wine is drinking beautifully now, and I am certain there will be some continued development in the bottle, but why wait? an hour in the decanter is more than enough to allow the character of this wine to shine.
