Exceptional wines are made possible by careful management of the farm’s extensive natural assets through innovative canopy management and selecting varieties and clones specifically suited to the various 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 m above sea level. The vineyards with their close proximity to both the Indian and Atlantic Oceans benefit from coastal fog and cool breezes. A mild Mediterranean climate with a maritime influence minimizes the risk of frost damage.
The soils at Jordan have evolved from 600 million-year-old Cape Granite, and range from deep, well-drained clay-loam to gravelly and sandy duplex soils situated on clay.
The Jordan philosophy combines the vineyards’ natural assets with innovative management, creating a profound expression of terroir.
