Jordan Sophia 2016

Specially made for the CWG Auction from our best hillside vineyards on Jordan Wine Estate, this wine has been named ‘Sophia’ after the legendary mother of Faith, Hope and Charity. Traditional pump-overs on the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with extended maceration after fermentation ensure a Bordeaux-like complexity. Barrel ageing for 26 months in 225 litre French oak barrels, of which two-thirds were new, has created a classic benchmark wine with an opulent structure and texture to age for many years.

Tasting Notes: Complex, dark chocolate, black cherry and cassis intertwine rich blackberry fruit, hints of vanilla and spice from the integrated French oak. Densely layered ripe tannins add to the opulent fruit.

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

Winemaker: Gary Jordan
