In The Vineyard

Location & Climate: The distinct ravine which embodies Stellenbosch Kloof harnesses all the qualities of a well-orientated compass. Varying elevations and aspects allows us to grow a selection of classic varieties to specific sites that optimise this expression through their location. The cooler south- and east-facing aspects, unique in Stellenbosch, hosts the more sensitive and aromatic white-skinned grape varieties.

Stellenbosch Kloof enjoys a cooler Mediterranean climate with mari-time influences from False Bay, 14km to the south, and a refreshing breeze channelled from the West Coast’s Benguela current 24km to the north-west. These two breezes culminate at the top end of the ravine and bring in early morning mists, especially from False Bay. Consequently, temperatures in our meso-climate can be measured at least 3° Celsius cooler than inland Stellenbosch during ripening peri-ods. This adds a unique characteristic to Jordan wines.

Appellation: Wine of Origin Stellenbosch.
Soil: Decomposed granite and loam.
Aspect: Cool south- and east-facing vineyards, 220m above sea level.
Age of vines: 34 years

About The Harvest

The grapes were harvested between the 2nd of February and the 17th of February 2015 between 21.7° - 22.4° B.

In The Cellar

After gentle pressing followed by cold-settling for 2 days, the juice was barrel-fermented in 228L second and third-fill Burgun-dian-shaped barrels, and matured “sur-lie” in the barrel for 8 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.
