This South African Chardonnay has a thousand facets, thanks to its origin from vineyards located in different blocks of the property and thanks to the harvest carried out at different degrees of ripeness of the grapes. The result is a perfectly balanced Chardonnay in its elegant complexity, bold and graceful at the same time.

In the mouth it has notes of lemon biscuit and of very ripe oranges.

Wine of Origin South Africa.

In the vineyard

The Jordan Wine Estate vineyards are located on the hills around Stellenbosch, about 300m above sea level. This area enjoys very favorable climatic conditions, as it is reached by the Atlantic breezes from False Bay, which cool the temperature by about 3 ° compared to the flat area. The cooler area, facing south and east, is home to the most sensitive and aromatic white grape varieties. The particular microclimate gives the Chardonnay an extraordinary uniqueness. The cool summer of the 2019 vintage, with moderate December and January temperatures, led to slow ripening and grapes with excellent acidity and finesse. The harvest took place from February 15th to March 28th 2019. This South African Chardonnay comes from vines aged 21 to 35 years.

In the cellar

67% of the must is fermented in 228l French oak barrels of 2nd and 3rd use and 33% in 400l Italian clay amphorae for 6 months.
The amphora has the natural ability to keep the pomace in constant suspension during fermentation. The must is then matured "sur-lie" for 6 months, with occasional punching down.
Four barrels are subjected to natural fermentation. No sulfur is added during winemaking, but only at the time of bottling.


Tim Atkin: 94/100.
