The Timepiece collection pays homage to Jordan's heritage, using exclusively vines that are over 35 years old. All this is topped off with a stamp from Jordan's founder, Ted Jordan.

The unique and varied locations in Stellenbosch Kloof offer wines with an individual character, showcasing the specific vineyard plots on the farm from which they originate. The cooler southern slope is home to the more sensitive and aromatic white-skinned grape varieties such as the Timepiece Chenin Blanc.

The fermentation took place in a combination of 51% French oak barrels of the 3rd and 4th fill and 49% in clay amphorae. The amphora's inherent ability to maintain the groin in a continuous state of suspension during fermentation was exploited - allowing the wine to be aged "sur lie" for 6 months after completion of alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. All this adds an undeniable richness to the palate. Six barrels were fermented with native yeasts only. No sulfur was added during the winemaking process, only at the final bottling.

In the nose you will find notes of quince and orchard fruits. The crystal clear palate is supported by the lively acidity and savory, ethereal finish.

ABOUT JORDAN

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!
