Description

Jordan Wines Cobblers Hill is the flagship red wine blend from Jordan Wines, Stellenbosch, their top Cape blend, the utimate expression of Jordan terroir. It is a limited-release wine, honouring the Jordan family heritage as master cobblers.

Gary and Kathy Jordan have been making world-class wines since 1993 on a farm with a history going back over 300 years. He’s a geologist, she’s an economist – together this husband and wife team is a phenomenon. Gary’s parents, Ted and Sheelagh, bought the 146 hectare Stellenbosch property in 1982, and embarked on an extensive replanting programme, specializing in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes.

The property is located in Stellenbosch Kloof which is a sub-region of the Stellenbosch Valley that is now considered to be one of South Africa’s finest winegrowing areas (it is also home to Neethlingshof wines). The estate  has vineyards in slopes facing North, South , East and West located at heights between 160 and 410m above sea level. There is influence from both the Indian and Atlantic ocean which brings beneficial coastal fog and cooling breezes and the region has a mild Mediterranean type climate. The vineyards that the grapes for the Cobblers Hill come from are situated on old decomposed Cape granite soils, they are west-facing, located at 220m and the vines have an average age of 22 years.

After harvest the grapes are fermented in stainless steel at 28c with three daily pump-overs to help extract tannin, colour and flavour. The grapes are pressed into barrels where they undergo malolactic fermentation. The best barrels are selected and the wine is then aged for 24 months in 225 litre French oak barrels. The 2016 Jordan Cobblers Hill is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28 % Merlot.

Tasting Notes
