Wine of the Month - Grand Vin de Glenelly 2007
Just as a brilliant piece of artwork has layers of expression, a brilliant bottling of wine has complexity. Harmoniously uniting countless components into one body of work is a phenomenon. The end result is never dull, it intrigues and resonates, and is not easily described in words.
Grand Vin de Glenelly 2007 is the epitome is this phenomenon. A blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and a touch of Petit Verdot, it offers aromas and textures of such complexity, seamlessly integrated, that you to return to the glass for another taste or smell - each time finding something new. As the estate’s signature red blend, it was crafted to inspire its drinkers by offering this complex nature.
The rich, savory character of Shiraz is enhanced by lush, concentrated flavors of blackberry, cherry and cassis, supported by floral tones and notes of spice. The Wine Advocate recently stamped this bottling 91 points describing it as "medium-bodied with good acidity and very impressive harmony, the oak is seamlessly integrated and leads to a very seductive, tobacco and spice-tinged finish."
At $25 SRP there is more to this bottle of wine than some $100 blends. If you're seeking something that will keep you on your toes, Grand Vin de Glenelly 2007 just may be your answer.
