Jordan Estate Outlier Sauvignon Blanc 2015/16
Ripe fig, gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours are complemented by some smoky vanilla nuances. This wine has been aged 8 months in oak barrels in the cellar (hence ‘Outlier’), so it’s richer and more complex than most New World Sauvignon. Think Cloudy Bay ‘Te Koko’ at under half the price!

Gary & Kathy Jordan and their children own and run this medium-sized estate in Stellenbosch, which has been in the ownership of the family since the late 1970’s. Gary is a geologist by training, Kathy an economist but they both studied winemaking as well at Davis University California. 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 styles. Jordan Estate were awarded Winery of the Year 2015 by the IWSC - and rightly deserved - their entire range of wines is testament to their incredible efforts in the vineyard.
