    Producer Profile

    INTRODUCTION

    Gary and Kathy Jordan have been making award-winning wines since 1993 on their 164 hectare hillside property with a grape growing history going back over 330 years.

    Unique by nature’s design, the Jordan slopes face North (where Cabernet Sauvignon excels), South (where Sauvignon Blanc competes with the best in the world), East (where Chardonnay produces Burgundian-like white wines) and West (where the Syrah vineyards enjoy the afternoon sun and gravelly soils). The ancient soils have evolved from 600 million year old Cape granite and range from deep, well-drained clay-loam to gravelly and sandy soils situated on clay. Vineyard elevations are between 150 and 410 meters above sea level.

    The Indian Ocean lies 15 kilometres to the South with the Atlantic Ocean lying 24 kilometres to the West, enabling Jordan Wine Estate to specialise in classic varieties well-suited to the various micro-climates. The state-of-the-art cellar is designed around a gravity flow system using natural cooling with fermentation and aging taking place in underground cellars.
