Jordan Inspector Peringuey is named in memory of Inspector General of Vineyards by the Government of the Cape who lead the fight against phylloxera and the pioneer of entomology in South Africa. The oldest block on the estate carries the lower-yielding Montpellier clone and the smaller berries allow for great fruit concentration and generous flavours of white pear, quince and green pineapple. Barrel-fermented and matured “sur lie” for 8 months to highlight the varietal character of this magical grape.
Gary and Kathy Jordan have been making world-class wines at this top wine estate since 1993 on a farm with a history going back over 300 years. Together this husband and wife team is a phenomenon. Gary’s parents, Ted and Sheelagh, bought the 164-hectare Stellenbosch property in 1982, and embarked on an extensive replanting programme, specialising in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes.
The Jordan philosophy combines the vineyards’ natural assets with innovative management, creating a profound expression of terroir. Jordan Wine Estate – the perfect Synergy between Soul and Soil.
