Description

Gary and Kathy Jordan have been making world-class wines since 1993 on a farm with a history going back over 300 years. Gary’s parents, Ted and Sheelagh, bought the now 164-hectare Stellenbosch property in 1982, and embarked on an extensive replanting programme, specializing in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes.

Gary and Kathy worked internationally for two years, gathering practical experience before they returned home to build a cellar in 1992. The following year, the vines were judged ready for making wines that combine the fruity accessibility of the New World with the classic elegance of the old.

This balance of retaining the best of the old and combining it with the best of the new is summed up in their own words: ‘The Jordan philosophy combines the vineyards’ natural assets with innovative management, creating a profound expression of terroir’.

This wine is inspired by the styles of Chablis where Chardonnay is allowed to express its inherent character. It is a unique unoaked offering that is defined partly by extended lees contact that develops mouthfeel and nuance in the wine. There are aromas of freshly grated lemon zest and citrus orchard that finishes with flavours of apricot puree and lime sorbet.

This wine is a lovely accompaniment to tapas and light seafood dishes.
