More information on wine critics and ratings

The Glenelly Glass Collection Unoaked Chardonnay hails from the esteemed Stellenbosch region in South Africa, renowned for producing world-class wines. This particular Chardonnay stands out due to its unoaked treatment, allowing the true expression of the grape and terroir to shine through.

Tasting Notes: The wine displays a bright and brilliant color with a slight green hue, indicating its freshness and vibrancy. A multifaceted aroma greets the nose, filled with notes of citrus fruit, ripe pear, quince, and a hint of flint, adding a subtle mineral edge. These aromas translate beautifully onto the palate, where the wine showcases a round and comforting texture. The length is remarkable, characterized by an intense citrus and mineral complexity that lingers pleasingly.

Pairing Ideas: This unoaked Chardonnay is versatile in pairing, making it a delightful accompaniment to a variety of dishes. Its crispness cuts through the richness of creamy pasta or risotto, while its citrus notes make it a perfect match for light seafood dishes like grilled fish or a shrimp salad. For a cheese pairing, try it with a mild goat cheese or a creamy brie to complement its vibrant acidity.

Robert Parker (RP) : 88 Points (2021)
Closed under a screw cap, the 2021 The Glass Collection Unwooded Chardonnay is focused, bright and mineral-driven with layers of citrus and leesy notes. Medium-bodied, the palate offers a delicate rocky, mineral essence and lingers with a bright, uncomplicated finish. This is meant for speed, not distance. Get it well chilled and drink it young.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 89 Points (2015)
A fresh, lightly toasted style, with enticing pear and fig fruit that streams through the finish. A light echo of hazelnut lingers. Drink now through 2018.
