Glenelly Estate Lady May 2014

A Dense, Tight Finish

A pre­mier exam­ple of the Bor­deaux pedi­gree, the Lady May Caber­net blend­ed red wine from Glenel­ly Estates in Stel­len­bosch, South Africa.


The Lady May Caber¬≠net is sap¬≠py and refined, with a dis¬≠tinct min¬≠er¬≠al¬≠i¬≠ty and under¬≠ly¬≠ing fruiti¬≠ness. Made pri¬≠mar¬≠i¬≠ly from Caber¬≠net Sauvi¬≠gnon with Caber¬≠net Franc, Petit Ver¬≠dot, and Mer¬≠lot grapes blend¬≠ed in, it is fresh and sub¬≠tle, with dense well-aged tan¬≠nins and a long, tight fin¬≠ish. The result of a slight¬≠ly delayed har¬≠vest in 2013, this wine has a greater bal¬≠ance and more com¬≠plex aro¬≠ma than pre¬≠vi¬≠ous vin¬≠tages. It was matured for 24 months in brand new French oak bar¬≠rels and clar¬≠i¬≠fied with nat¬≠ur¬≠al egg whites pri¬≠or to bottling.


A red meat kind of wine, this is the bot¬≠tle you pop open for a beau¬≠ti¬≠ful rare to medi¬≠um-rare steak‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČlike our Chilled Sher Wagyu Striploin by Makati Shangri-La. Or if you pre¬≠fer, a nice, juicy burg¬≠er. Have it with short rib or roast lamb with a side of por¬≠to¬≠bel¬≠lo mush¬≠rooms. This wine is great with hard cheeses like aged Ched¬≠dar or Gou¬≠da and blue cheeses like Stil¬≠ton or Gor¬≠gonzo¬≠la. Still look¬≠ing for an appro¬≠pri¬≠ate side dish? Make your¬≠self a cheesy polenta!


The winelands of the west¬≠ern South African Cape are a tem¬≠per¬≠ate region sim¬≠i¬≠lar to the M√©doc region in Bor¬≠deaux. The vine¬≠yards of Glenel¬≠ly Estate are locat¬≠ed between the Atlantic and Indi¬≠an Oceans, enjoy¬≠ing a prime micro¬≠cli¬≠mate con¬≠ducive to grape ripen¬≠ing. Stel¬≠len¬≠bosch winer¬≠ies gen¬≠er¬≠al¬≠ly plant their vines on west-fac¬≠ing slopes, but Glenel¬≠ly lucked out on the cool¬≠er east-fac¬≠ing ones, allow¬≠ing their grapes to mature slow¬≠ly at an even rate.

Storage Instructions

Store unopened red wines in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from con¬≠stant vibra¬≠tion. Keep your bot¬≠tle hor¬≠i¬≠zon¬≠tal in a wine rack or cel¬≠lar to retain the moist¬≠ness of the cork. The ide¬≠al tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture for stor¬≠age is between 16 to 18¬įC. Once opened, a bot¬≠tle will be good for 3 to 5 days stand¬≠ing upright in the refrigerator.
