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.
Unique by nature’s design the Jordan slopes face North South East and West with vineyards lying at differing altitudes from 160 to 410 meters above sea level. The vineyards benefit from their close proximity to both the Indian and Atlantic Oceans and enjoy a mild Mediterranean climate with a maritime influence.
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.
Sophia, meaning wisdom in Greek, is presented with an owl on her shoulder, symbolising wisdom. In her right hand, she holds a laurel wreath, the symbol of peace and success. Her three daughters, the Saints Faith, Hope, and Charity or Love – Pistis, Elpis, and Agape – are symbolised by the sun, moon, and earth, representing the characteristics of the three classic Bordeaux varieties that make up this exceptional wine.
Blend: 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot & 10% Petit Verdot
