Jordan CWG Chardonnay 2022

100% Chardonnay
Wine of Origin Stellenbosch

  • This benchmark Chardonnay from the oldest vineyards on Jordan Wine Estate is traditionally made according to classic Burgundian winemaking techniques.
  • Intensely concentrated lemon-lime flavours and slow fermentation in 228 litre French oak barrels for 12 months have resulted in a reserve style wine with a new world twist.
  • Quartzite veins through the 600-million-year-old granite sub-strata provide the backbone for the classic mineral flavours.

Tasting Notes: An iconic Chardonnay with intense mineral, lemon-lime flavours and hints of butterscotch and vanilla. The full, rich mouthfeel and balanced oak integrate superbly with the tropical fruit finish.

Well-structured, this wine will reward careful cellaring for many years to come.

Winemaker: Gary Jordan
