Cellar for up to 4 years. Serve chilled.

Today the Jordan family are recognised as some of Stellenbosch’s most important winemakers thanks to their visionary approach and commitment to working in harmony with nature. Set on a three-hundred year old farm, the winery was purchased in 1982 by Ted and Sheelagh Jordan who set about transforming it by planting varietals that suited the local terroir.

The Jordan family took inspiration from the bright and vibrant Chardonnay wines of Chablis when crafting this wine and decided to allow the expressive inherent nature of the grape to shine through without the use of oak ageing. The grapes are sourced from the family’s south and east-facing vineyards where the cooler climate helps to preserve freshness and delicate aromatics in the finished wine. Following the harvest the wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged on the lees for 4 months add extra complexity and structure.

The result is a crisp, fresh Chardonnay that sings with lively aromas of white peaches, lemon zest, and apricot puree. The first sip reveals a racy acidity, smooth texture, and intense tropical and citrus fruit flavours which linger on the tongue. This delicious combination of rich, creamy texture and vibrant fruit character make this wine an ideal partner for dishes like fruits de mer, grilled fish, or leafy summer salads.
