Jordan Estate Chameleon Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot: Discover South Africa's "Baby Cobblers Hill"

Introduction

From South Africa's renowned Stellenbosch region comes Jordan Estate Chameleon Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot, a delightful red blend that embodies the vibrancy and approachable style of South African winemaking.  Often referred to as the "Baby Cobblers Hill" in reference to Jordan Estate's flagship wine, this blend offers a delicious introduction to the winery's signature style. Let's delve into its tasting notes and uncover ideal food pairings.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: The Chameleon displays a vibrant ruby red hue with youthful purple highlights.
  • Nose: A burst of ripe black fruits greets the nose, with blackcurrant, blackberry, and a hint of plum taking the lead. Subtle notes of cedar, vanilla, and a touch of dried herbs add depth and complexity.
  • Palate: The palate is medium-bodied, showcasing juicy dark fruit flavours that mirror the aromas. The merlot softens the tannins of the Cabernet Sauvignon, creating a smooth and approachable mouthfeel. Hints of spice, like black pepper, add a touch of intrigue. The finish is satisfyingly long, with lingering fruit and a subtle touch of oak.

Food Pairing Suggestions

Jordan Estate Chameleon's versatility makes it a fantastic companion for various dishes:

  • Grilled Goodness: Enjoy this wine alongside juicy burgers, perfectly cooked lamb chops, or a classic sirloin steak.
  • Hearty Dishes: The wine complements rich pasta dishes, a comforting beef stew, or a flavoursome shepherd's pie.
