The wines of Jordan - Estate wines

From the Jordan hillside vineyards one has spectacular panoramic views of Table Mountain, False Bay and Stellenbosch. Gary and Kathy worked internationally for two years, refining their high-energy instincts with practical experience. They returned home to build a cellar in 1992.

merlot - Mature vineyards yield opulent fruit with plum, rich blackberry and mocha flavours. Framed by generously rounded tannins and spiciness from maturation in French oak, this wine is seductive from start to finish.

100% Syrah - The Prospector - The gold rush of the 1800’s led to the discovery of tin in the gravels underlying the Syrah vineyards at Jordan. These minerals lend particular characteristics to this Syrah with its rich, dense, dark chocolate, black fruit and fynbos flavours interlaced with white pepper. Barrel maturation adds toasty nuances to the richly textured structure.
