Lady May is Glenelly’s flagship estate wine. The 2015 bordeaux blend pays tribute to the pedigree of its legionary owner, May de Lencquesaing. Made from a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 11% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot grape varietals. The grapes were lightly crushed into stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was done by natural yeast with a mixture of rack and returns and open pump-overs, followed by post-fermentation skin contact during 2-3 weeks and pressed gently. Malolactic fermentation occurred in French oak barrels. The wine stayed on the lees for a long period of time before racking. Racked on average every 4 months. Matured for 24 months in new French oak barrels. During the aging, the wine is clarified with natural egg whites and bottled later. A total of 25,900 bottles were produced. Bottled at 14.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Great concentration, pronounced notes of dark red fruits, plums, blackberries and cassis with hints of dried herbs.

Palate: Fruit purity on entry, similar to the nose, notes of plums and blackcurrants. Mid-palate reveals a medium plus, gentle powdery tannin structure.

Finish: Elegant but powerful with lovely lingering notes of oak spice.
