Jordan The Prospector Syrah 2021


Jordan The Prospector Syrah

Refined nose with blackberries, some spicy notes and a hint of vanilla. Ripe tannins on the palate and a firm body.

Jordan, spectacular panoramic views of Stellenbosch and Cape Town, cool hillside vineyards planted with classic varieties and a modern winery. Distinctive wines that combine the ripe concentrated fruity accessibility of the New World with the complex elegance of classic wine.

Kathy and Gary Jordan took over the domain purchased by Gary's parents in 1982 in 1992, after both working abroad for two years. Fortunately, Gary was already involved in the planting in the 1980s. Gary is a geologist and used his knowledge to analyze the terroir, ensuring that each grape variety was planted in the right place. Today, Jordan benefits immensely from these choices. Their vineyards are now mature enough to provide fantastic complexity, while other producers have only just begun to plant the right vines on the right soil. Jordan is the only estate in Stellenbosch that has vineyards planted in every direction. It is a real family business that has been making high-quality wines for years. They combine the ripe, concentrated and fruity accessibility of the New World and the complex structure of classic wines. The international appreciation is therefore enormous. For example, the flagship, the Nine Yards hardonnay, has already been named 'Best Chardonnay in the World' twice by the wine magazine Decanter and has also won the Thesis Wine Competition. In 2014, even the 'regular' Barrel Fermented Chardonnay was crowned 'Best Chardonnay in the World' by Decanter! In addition, they also became South African 'Producer of the Year' at IWSC in 2014.
