Jordan Chenin blanc ''barrel fermented''

Jordan

2012 Chenin Blanc

Description

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.

Variety

100% Chenin Blanc

Vineyards

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

Winemaking

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.
