Reviews of Glenelly Lady May 2013
- Fresh and vibrant, the evolution of the wine introduces flavours specific to Glenelly's terroir. Deeply coloured and perfectly balanced, the wine displays an exquisite structure with velvety tannins and a very good aging capability.
- The grapes were lightly crushed into stainless steel tanks. The fermentation was done by natural yeast with a mixture of rack and returns and open pump overs.
- We did post fermentation skin contact for 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.

At the sight it is red ruby. The Glenelly Lady May exudes aromas of violets. Although I prefer less sweet wines, this one it was good.
