Jordan Sophia 2012

A blend of the best ‘Cobblers Hill’ barrels and a reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine has been named ‘Sophia’ after the legendary mother of Faith, Hope and Charity. Representing the characteristics of the three Bordeaux varieties that make up this exceptional wine, the Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes were harvested from the best hillside vineyards at Jordan, which overlook Table Mountain and False Bay. Fermented at 28°C with three pump-overs daily, over the fermenting cap. After pressing, the wine was racked to barrel where it completed malolactic fermentation. The wine spent a total of 26 months in 225 litre French oak barrels to integrate the rich tannins and add complexity.
