Jordan celebrates with three 5-star John Platter awards

13 November 2020  -  Jordan Wine Estate

The team at Jordan are thrilled that two of our newest wines, to the Jordan wine selection: Jordan MCC Blanc de Blancs 2015 & our Insiders Cabernet Franc 2018 (exclusively for our Wine Club members) were awarded 5 stars by the Platter’s by Diners Club South African 2021 Wine Guide.

We caught up with Kathy and Gary Jordan and winemaker Sjaak Nelson regarding these exceptional wines.

Jordan Nine Yards Chardonnay 2019
“Nothing personifies iconic Stellenbosch chardonnay better than the Jordan Nine Yards.  Exceptional estate fruit, an elevated cool vineyard site and attention to detail in our gravity-flow cellar bodes well as we build up to our 20th vintage of this internationally-acclaimed reserve wine.” Gary Jordan

Jordan Blanc de Blanc Méthode Cap Classique 2015
“The 2015 Jordan Blanc de Blancs Méthode Cap Classique is an exceptional wine from an exceptional vintage.  In its youth, the 2015 vintage showed a wonderful elegance and complexity, making it the perfect vintage for us to reserve some of the bottling for longer aging on the lees, a total of 54 months.  This late disgorged wine expresses both the finesse and character of Jordan Chardonnay, for which the estate is so well known, as well as the richness and balance of the 2015 vintage.” Kathy Jordan

Insiders Cabernet Franc 2018
“The Jordan Cabernet Franc was discovered one late Friday afternoon on an expedition through the red wines cellar looking for a pot of silver but stumbling upon a pot of gold!

This cabernet franc is the ultimate expression of what Jordan terroir driven cabernet franc should taste like: black and red fruits, with a hint of candy floss, full mouthfeel with all the fruit from the nose pulling through onto the pallet an elegant finish.

With the production of only 912 bottles, it was decided that this small batch of cabernet franc should be sold exclusively to our loyal Insiders Wine Club members.” Sjaak Nelson

Having 6 wines nominated for 5 stars in the 2021 Platter Wine Guide, out of over 8000 wines rated, the achievement of 3 wines being awarded is fantastic. The additional nominated wines are:

Timepiece Chenin Blanc 2019 – NEW RELEASE COMING SOON
The Long Fuse Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
