Jordan Estate The Outlier Sauvignon Blanc: A South African Gem with Zesty Elegance

Introduction

South Africa's Stellenbosch region is renowned for its exceptional Sauvignon Blanc, and Jordan Estate's 'The Outlier' is a standout expression. This wine showcases a delicate balance of vibrant fruit flavours, subtle oak nuances, and refreshing acidity, making it a delightful choice for discerning palates. Let's delve into its tasting notes and discover the perfect food pairings.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: The Outlier Sauvignon Blanc displays a pale, lemon-yellow hue with vibrant green tinges.
  • Nose: A burst of tropical fruit aromas leaps from the glass – think passionfruit, guava, and ripe gooseberry. Hints of green fig, freshly cut grass, and subtle vanilla notes from the oak add complexity.
  • Palate: The palate is where this wine truly shines. A vibrant acidity sets the stage for flavours of sun-kissed tropical fruits, citrus zest, and just a touch of herbaceousness. The delicate use of oak adds a subtle creaminess and a hint of vanilla on the lingering finish.

Food Pairing Suggestions

Jordan Estate The Outlier Sauvignon Blanc's versatility makes it a fantastic pairing partner for various dishes:

  • Seafood Delights: Its zesty acidity complements fresh oysters, grilled prawns, or a classic fish and chips.
  • Salads & Vegetarian Fare: Pair it with a summery goat cheese salad, grilled asparagus, or a flavorful vegetable stir-fry.
  • Creamy & Herbaceous: This Sauvignon Blanc balances beautifully with creamy pasta dishes featuring fresh herbs like basil or dill.
  • A Touch of Spice: Its vibrant fruit and clean finish can handle a bit of heat. Try it with lightly spiced Thai green curry or a fragrant chicken stir-fry.

About the Wine

The Outlier Sauvignon Blanc reflects Jordan Estate's commitment to crafting exceptional wines in harmony with the unique terroir of Stellenbosch. The grapes for this wine are meticulously sourced from older, south-east facing vineyards, ensuring optimal ripeness and flavour development. A portion of the wine is fermented in oak, adding depth and complexity to the final blend.
