The gardens and willow trees at Jordan are home to the Cape Dwarf Chameleon. Chameleon is a wonderfully apt name, expressing the changing flavours of the component varieties of these fruit-driven blends.
Its chameleon-like character adapts to any drinking experience, from summer sipping to Alfresco dining. Showcasing the broad fruit spectrum found in the Winelands, initial forward Cape green fig flavours follow through to a layered palate of ruby grapefruit and winter melon glacé.
The sauvignon blanc was harvested between the 12th and 14th of February 2020. The chardonnay between the 7th February and 12th of March 2020.
WINEMAKING & MATURATION
The sauvignon blanc was tank-fermented to retain its intense varietal character and blended with tank-fermented chardonnay that received extended lees contact, to create a full, fruity wine.
