From vineyards on the cool south and east facing slopes of the Jordan Estate which benefit from the sea breezes coming inland from False Bay, this Sauvignon Blanc combines rich, ripe fruit with a well balanced palate. Heady aromas of blackcurrant (leaf) and green fruit lead to a ripe, tropical-fruited palate. Try this with fresh salads or vegetarian dishes. Buy this if...you love New World Sauv Blanc.

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, returning 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.

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"The ever-reliable Jordan has turned in a highly quaffable Sauvignon from its Stellenbosch vineyards, with no oak influence but a little skin contact to add some interesting flavours and textures on top of sparky, bright Sauvignon fruit. There’s a touch of flintiness, some green fig and lemon peel on top of bold grassy and herbal aromas. In the mouth a sweet and full tropical palate of lychee and nectarine, dazzling-fresh acidity but that nice richness of texture adds up to a substantial but clean and fresh style that I’m confident SB lovers will enjoy"

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.

Whipped Goat's Cheese

A super-simple but very effective use for goat's cheese, this makes a good party dish for sharing, with the peppery radishes contrasting perfectly with the creamy cheese. Stick with the classics and go for Sauvignon Blanc. We're recommend Jordan Sauvignon Blanc from Stellenbosch.
