Glenelly - a 'must visit' estate in the winelands

By Admin | 5 December 2016

May de Lencquesaing started a new adventure on South African Soil in 2003 at the age of 78: Glenelly Estate was reborn. Today, 13 years later, alongside her two grandsons Nicolas Bureau and Arthur de Lencquesaing, the 8th generation of vintners and wine producers, they are reshaping what was already a great success. With her unique experience and vision, with the support of the winemaker Luke O’Cuinneagain and viticulturalist Heinrich Louw, Glenelly is moving forward.

After closing to the public for extensive renovations over the past year, the Stellenbosch estate has re-opened as a world-class winelands destination including a hospitable bistro, a tasting room with spectacular views and a perfect new home for Madame’s private glass collection.

Why is Cape Town such a great tourist destination? Oh, there are so many reasons. I first took my family there back in 2003, when our boys were still young. I remember that before we travelled, most of the people we spoke to were surprised: isn’t it risky to take your family on holiday there? What about the crime? This planted little seeds of doubt in my mind, so for the first day of that trip I was scared and overly cautious. But I quickly realised that the concerned friends were completely wrong. While crime certainly exists, and I’m not making light of it, I’ve been multiple times and never felt threatened any more than I would in London or Paris.

In Jo's glass

I was recently in South Africa for Cape Wine and managed to taste several vintages of the delicious Vin de Constance from Klein Constantia. I usually opt for a sweet wine at the end of a meal instead of a pudding and The Vin de Constance is a perfect way to end a meal. It's rich and opulent with stone fruits, vanilla and a hint of spice yet it is also fresh, balanced and has a long, moreish finish. Master of Wine, Tim Atkin, highly rated both the 2011 and 2012 in his most recent report on South Africa which is available to download for £15 on timatkin.com.
