Gary and Cathy Jordan have been making world class wines since 1993 on a farm with a history going back over 300 years. This Chenin is part fermented in barrel and then aged on its lees for seven months to gain greater complexity. French oak adds style and class. Tropical fruit aromas lead to citrus and honey on the palate, which is medium dry with a touch of oaky spice and vanilla adding to the rich complexity of this wine.

Buy this if...you love complex, honeyed white wines.

Deliciously full and rich in its tropical fruit and ripe melon flavours, but with a characteristic Chenin sour-apple and lemon tang that makes it dangerously easy to drink, this is a very well made Cape white.'

The Producer

Owned and managed by Gary and Cathy Jordan since 1993, this Stellenbosch farm has a history dating back over 300 years. Gary's a geologist, Cathy an economist by trade but together this husband and wife team is a phenomenon. Gary's parents, Ted and Sheelagh, bought the 146 hectare farm in 1982 and embarked on an extensive replanting programme, specialising in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes. Gary and Cathy worked internationally for two years, refining their high energy instincts with practical experience. They returned home in 1992 to build a new cellar and begin the winemaking odyssey that has cemented their position as one of the key players in the South African wine industry.

The Winemaker

Sjaak Nelson has been part of the furniture (in the nicest possible way) at Jordan estate for over 15 years. Growing up amongst the vineyards of Tulbagh, he started out studying Business Management but chanced upon a week's winery work at Tulbagh co-operative as a recent graduate and three years later he was still there. A move to Stellenbosch winery Saxenberg followed and he soon moved on to neightbours Jordan Estate where he has been making award-winning wines ever since!

The Region

If panoramas are your thing, then you might like to take a trip to Jordan Estate for the spectacular hillside vineyards of Table Mountain, False Bay and Stellenbosch. The complex patchwork of soils, aspects, altitudes and micro-climates helps contribute to the incredible success of this estate. The vineyards on these slopes face north, south, east and west, with vineyards lying at altitudes up to 400m above sea level. Close proximity to both the Indian and Atlantic Oceans allows from coastal fog and cool sea breezes minimise the risk of frost damage.

First Class Chenin

Drink it straight from the fridge and enjoy this as a great aperitif. Or match it with fish or chicken and it's complex ripe flavours come through - pow... We made chicken with a herb, cheese and lemon crust and the Chenin matched it perfectly. We loved this wine - how can it be so fruity and dry too? Looking forward to ordering more!

Fruity Pork

Succulent roast pork with a rich fruity sauce needs a wine with ripe, generous fruit and crisp, mineral acidity to balance out the sweetness of the sauce. We'd go for a ripe, new world white such as Chenin Blanc with enough weight to take on the meat and fruit combination.

Cheesy Chilli Bacon Skewers

A great party food idea, theses more-ish snacks are packed with flavour and will cope well with an equally punchy, ripe white with good acidity.

Spicy Fish Braai

Super-simple but very effective, the spicy marinade on barbecued fish combines sweetness, heat and plenty of flavour. Try a tropical-fruited but light white wine such as Chenin Blanc or fruity Sauvignon.
