Jordan Barrel Fermented Chardonnay: A Stellenbosch Symphony of Citrus and Oak

Harnessing the Cool Embrace of the False Bay: Nestled amongst the south and east-facing slopes of the Stellenbosch Kloof, the Jordan winery basks in the cooling influences of the False Bay. This unique terroir allows the Chardonnay grapes to develop intense flavour compounds within their skins, laying the foundation for a wine of exceptional complexity.

A Tapestry of Chardonnay Clones: The Jordan Barrel Fermented Chardonnay is not a singular expression, but rather a meticulously crafted blend of various Chardonnay clones. Each clone, planted on a different slope and harvested at its optimal ripeness, contributes its own unique character to the final masterpiece. This diversity of fruit allows the winemakers to achieve natural balance and textural depth, ultimately resulting in a wine that is both finesseful and complex.

Bold Aromas and Graceful Palate: The moment you uncork this Chardonnay, you're greeted by a bold and captivating bouquet. Imagine the zesty fragrance of lemon biscuit mingling with the sweetness of overripe oranges, creating an olfactory experience that is both vibrant and inviting. As the wine dances across your palate, the fruit-forward notes are perfectly balanced by the subtle influence of oak, resulting in a graceful and harmonious journey.

A Journey Through Oak and Lees: The secret to the Jordan Chardonnay's depth and complexity lies in its meticulous winemaking process. The juice is fermented in small, 228-litre Burgundy-shaped French oak barrels, a combination of new and seasoned wood that imparts subtle notes of toast and spice. The wine then undergoes a nine-month maturation "sur lie" within these barrels, a process where it rests on the spent yeast lees, adding richness and texture. This delicate dance with oak and lees elevates the Chardonnay to new heights, creating a wine that is both intriguing and elegant.
