Jordan Wine Estate
Inspector Péringuey Chenin Blanc 2018, Jordan Wine Estate
South Africa / Stellenbosch
Andy's Tasting Notes
A rich, rounded and citrus fruit tinged Chenin with overtones of tropical fruit, subtle creamy oak, honey and nutmeg. Dry and textural yet balanced and fresh.
A serious bottle of Chenin Blanc for its price. Will develop more complexity if aged further till 2023.
Named after Louis Albert Péringuey, the 19th Century Inspector-General of Vineyards in the Cape, who led the fight against phylloxera and supervised the importation of American rootstocks onto which the various vineyard varieties were grafted.
Price per bottle £12.60
Gary and Kathy Jordan have been making world-class wines 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 146 hectare Stellenbosch property in 1982, and embarked on an extensive replanting programme, specializing in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes.
