2017 CHARDONNAY, Jordan. Stellenbosch, South Africa

Bin:  270

Alcohol percentage:  13.5%

Area:

Gary and Kathy Jordan run an immaculate 150 hectare vineyard in a stunning location overlooking both the Stellenbosch vineyards and Cape Town. If you are ever in the area you MUST go! Excellent restaurant too. The large vineyard area means they have different sites suitable for different varieties – the Chardonnay is on the cooler south and east facing slopes at around 300m above sea level

Grape variety:

Chardonnay fermented and matured for 9 months in oak (around half new oak); with 8% steel fermented wine blended in the last minute to add freshness

Producer:

Gary and Kathy are the modern face of South Africa, making clean, elegant, genuinely ‘fine’ wines. Gary’s father bought the farm in 1982 and the cellar was built in 1992 with the first vintage the following year

Old Bridge rating:

Fresh but rounded Chardonnay – not so easy to find really good oaked examples nowadays

Food match:

Versatile food wine – good with lots of fish and meat. But also has the creaminess to match Brie, Camembert and similar strong cheese
