The Glass Collection unoaked Chardonnay is the entry level white wine of Glenelly Estate. It shows a bright yellow colour with a hint of green. The wine has expressive aromas of citrus, lime zest and melon. On the palate there is a round and comforting texture with a decent length and intense fruit complexity. In short, a very well made mineral Chardonnay at a great price.

|What experts say|
16.5/20 "This is so inviting in its classic restraint but it opens up to quite a definite note of honeysuckle. I saw this written on the back label and thought it would be an exaggeration but it isn't at all. On the palate, excellent freshness, a very very fine grain to the texture (from the lees?), which adds depth and length. It's not the most concentrated but it is so refined and pure. Great stuff. It may age longer but I haven't tasted older vintages. VGV (JH)" (previous vintage)
88/100 "Fresh, showing a mix of yellow and green apple fruit gilded with light honeysuckle and shortbread notes. Drink now."
