2020 Jordan Chameleon Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay

Jordan Wine Estate

Stellenbosch

Its chameleon-like character adapts to any drinking experience, from summer sipping to Alfresco dining. Showcasing the broad fruit spectrum found in the Winelands, initial forward Cape green fig flavours follow through to a layered palate of ruby grapefruit and winter melon glacé.


Viticulture

Vine age of 32-37 years. Soil of decomposed granite and loam. Cool south- and east-facing vineyards, 220m above sea level. The sauvignon blanc was harvested between the 12th and 14th of February 2020. The chardonnay between the 7th February and 12th of March 2020.


Vinification

The sauvignon blanc was tank-fermented to retain its intense varietal character and blended with tank-fermented chardonnay that received extended lees contact, to create a full, fruity wine.


Recommendation

Versatile white – with or without food. But perfect with a creamy pasta dish.
