Glen Carlou was established in 1985 and since 2003 has been successfully owned and run by Hess Family Estates. To harness the farm’s vast winegrowing potential, the vines are meticulously selected in terms of rootstock and clone, while every variety is carefully chosen for its compatibility to the terroir. Yields are kept rigorously low, ensuring that nature’s gifts are distilled in the flavourful grapes that they harvest. In the cellar, winemaker Arco Laarman and his team join forces with nature to create the Glen Carlou wines.
Green fruit with a nutty, butterscotch note. Ripe apple, hints of toffee and spice, subtle melon and citrus. Crisp, clean and fresh with good acid backbone. The wine will benefit and grow in structure with age in the bottle.
