This is a stylish wine with a well ballanced natural acidity.
The ultimate expression of Jordan terroir, this wine is made in a Reserve Style, from a barrel selection from our best vineyard site. Stylistically different to our Jordan Chardonnay, with this wine they went “The Whole Nine Yards”
Made from 100% Chardonnay from Vineyards situated between 250 – 280m above sea level, this 18 year old, site-specific vineyard is planted to both Burgundian and Davis clone Chardonnay. Innovative canopy management and low crop levels ensure that the vineyard produces smaller berries with concentrated citrus flavours.
Crushed and pressed immediately after de-stemming, the juice was barrel-fermented in traditional 228 litre new French oak barrels “sur lie” for 12 months, with regular barrel rolling to accentuate the rich, leesy character.
Butterscotch, spicy cloves, lemon/lime and orange peel with complex mineral citrus flavours. A rich mouthfeel and subtly balanced toasty French oak integrate with the long, tropical peach and melon finish.
