This great red wine from top winery Jordan from South Africa is very complex and full-bodied. The wine is made from 100% Syrah/Shiraz. The grapes grow on a slightly elevated vineyard (220m above sea level) with a granite soil. The Jordan Prosepctor Syrah has many similarities with a Northern Rhône wine. In the glass, the wine has a beautiful bright ruby red color with a refined nose with blackberries, some spicy notes and a hint of vanilla. In the mouth ripe tannins and a firm body.

Stellenbosch is South Africa's most famous wine growing area, Stellenbosch has the most top domains and is surrounded by mountains (Helderberg and Simonsberg) and has vineyards in every direction. Stellenbosch has the only university in South Africa with a viticulture department. Even though two-thirds of the vineyards are planted with white grapes, the realization is growing that Stellenbosch is destined for red wine.

Vineyard for 2021 Jordan Stellenbosch The Prospector Syrah

Jordan Winery is professionally run by Gary and Kathy Jordan. Not only do they make excellent wines, Jordan's restaurant, bistro and guesthouses are also worth a visit.

Kathy and Gary Jordan, after both working abroad for two years, took over the domain purchased by Gary's parents in 1982 in 1992. Fortunately, Gary was already involved in the planting in the 1980s. Gary is a geologist and used his knowledge to analyze the terroir to ensure that each grape variety was planted in the right place. Today, Jordan benefits greatly from these choices. Their vines are now mature enough to provide fantastic complexity, while other producers are just beginning to plant the right vines in the right soil. Jordan is the only estate in Stellenbosch that has vineyards planted in every direction. It is a real family business where high quality wines have been made for years. They combine the ripe, concentrated and fruity accessibility of the New World and the complex structure of classic wines. The international appreciations are therefore enormous. For example, the flagship, the Nine Yards hardonnay, has already been named 'Best Chardonnay of the World' twice by the wine magazine Decanter and has also won the Proefschrift Wijnconcours. 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.

The wines from the Chameleon range have been produced by Jordan since 1993. With the proceeds of these wines, 4 research projects are currently being funded that focus their research on the Kaapse Dwerg Kameleon (Kaapse Dwerg Verkleurmannetjie in Afrikaans). The habitat of this small chameleon species is threatened by urbanization and intensive agriculture, causing more and more of the animal's natural habitat (fynbos) to disappear. By gaining more insight into the living pattern of these (hard to find) animals, it is hoped that they can be saved from extinction. The wines used for this range naturally have the quality one would expect from Gary and Cathy Jordan, but are especially made for the moments that call for wine for festive and relaxed moments; in other words, perfect for a braai with friends!
