2014 Glenelly Estate Reserve Chardonay

2014 Glenelly Estate Reserve Chardonay

Wine Advocate 92pts: "Bottled two months prior to my tasting, the 2014 Grand Vin Chardonnay had ad higher percentage of malolactic compared to the 2013 and so 1,000 liters of Unwooded Chardonnay was back blended to raise the acidity. The nose is very well defined with touches of smoke and Flint permeating the citrus fruit. The palate is slightly viscous on the entry, crisp, and quite spicy with a touch of nutmeg and undergrowth towards the Chablis-like finish. This is a worthy follow up to the 2013. "


Wine Enthusiast 90pts: "This wine starts off quiet and reserved, but with time, reveals itself as a lush and ripe selection. Aromas of red apple, toasted challah, honeycomb and banana cream pie slowly unfold in the bouquet and carry through to the medium-weight palate, where it is balanced by medium acidity and supporting tones of sweet citrus oil and baking spice."

Winemaker's Notes: "The Estate Reserve Chardonnay displays a wonderful bright color. The nose exhibits vibrant citrus, lime zest and flint with hints of apple with vanilla and butterscotch. The lush, creamy texture is underpinned with a beautiful minerality, fresh citrus notes and hints of toasted almond and vanilla."
