Wine tasting notes

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 since 1993. Garys parents, Ted and Sheelagh, bought the 146 ha Stellenbosch property in 1982, and embarked on an extensive replanting programme specialising in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes. Jordan continues to focus on producing fiercely individual wines that combine the fruity accessibility of the New World with the Classic Elegance of the Old.

Expert reviews

Platter's South African Wine Guide (2019) - 4.5 stars

Signature vivacious flavours on 2019 before baked stonefruit & creamy lees richness unfurl. As 2018 (93 pts), fermented in older oak but unoaked portion upped to 42% for freshness. Structured & persistent. Wine tasted by Fiona McDonald.

Vinification notes

After gentle pressing followed by cold-settling for 2 days, the juice was barrel-fermented in 228L second and third-fill Burgundian-shaped barrels, and matured “sur-lie” in the barrel for 8 months with occasional “barrel rolling” to add richness to the palate. To accentuate the fresh citrus flavour, 50 % tank-fermented Chenin Blanc was blended with the barrel fermented portion.
