Jordan Chenin blanc ''barrel fermented''


2012 Chenin Blanc


Spectacular panoramic views of Stellenbosch and Cape Town, cool hillside vineyards planted to classic varieties, and a modern family-run winery have combined to produce distinctive wines displaying the ripe concentrated fruity accessibility of the New World, with the complex elegance of classic wine.


100% Chenin Blanc


The grapes were harvested from 25 - 30 year old, cool south- and east-facing

vineyards, situated on decomposed granite and loamy soils, 220m above sea level.

Harvest Date

Harvested between 21st of February and 9th March 2012


After gentle pressing followed by cold-settling for 2 days, the juice was barrel-

fermented in 228l second and third-fill Burgundy-shaped barrels, and matured "sur-lie" in the barrel for 7 months with occasional "barrel rolling" to add richness to the palate. To accentuate the fresh citrus flavour, 50 % tank-fermented Chenin Blanc was blended with the barrel fermented portion.

Tasting Notes

French oak adds style and class to this magical grape.  A contemporary and deliciously

mouth-filling experience of citrus cream, tropical fruit and honey interlaced with a spicy complexity.
