Jordan Estate Nine Yards Chardonnay 2016

The Ultimate Expression of Jordan Terroir.

Gary and Kathy Jordan have been making world-class wines since 1993. Garys parents, Ted and Sheelagh, bought the 146 ha Stellenbosch property in 1982, and embarked on an extensive replanting programme specialising in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes. Jordan continues to focus on producing fiercely individual wines that combine the fruity accessibility of the New World with the Classic Elegance of the Old.

Tasting Notes

The Nine Yards Chardonnay is the ultimate expression of the Jordan terroir. Rich and modern, yet classically defined: the wine was barrel-fermented in traditional 228-litre French oak barrels (92% new and 8% second fill) from selected Burgundian cooperages (Damy, Chassin and Rousseau). The wine was matured “sur lie” for 13 months, with regular barrel-rolling to accentuate the rich, leesy character. Notes of lime oil, butterscotch and clove flower. Enjoy now until 2025+.
