Jordan Inspector Péringuey Chenin Blanc 2021

Jordan Inspector Péringuey Chenin Blanc 2021

French oak adds style and class to this magical grape. A contem-porary and deliciously mouth-filling experience of white pear, quince and green pineapple interlaced with a spicy complexity.

Perfect with mild Thai curries or grilled chicken.

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.

in the vineyard : The distinct ravine which embodies Stellenbosch Kloof harnesses all the qualities of a well-orientated compass. Varying elevations and
aspects allows us to grow a selection of classic varieties to specific sites that optimise this expression through their location. The cooler south- and east-facing aspects, unique in Stellenbosch, hosts the more sensitive and aromatic white-skinned grape varieties.

 Stellenbosch Kloof enjoys a cooler Mediterranean climate with maritime influences from False Bay, 14km to the south, and a refreshing breeze channelled from the West Coast’s Benguela current 24km to the north-west. These two breezes culminate at the top end of the ravine and bring in early morning mists, especially
from False Bay. Consequently, temperatures in our meso-climate can be measured at least 3° Celsius cooler than inland Stellenbosch during ripening periods. This adds a unique characteristic to Jordan wines.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested between the 23rd of February and the 1st of March 2021 at 23°B.

in the cellar : After gentle pressing followed by cold-settling for 2 days, the juice was barrel-fermented in 228L in 2nd & 3rd fill Burgundianshaped barrels, and matured “sur-lie” in the barrel for 7 months with occasional “barrel rolling” to add richness to the palate. To accentuate the fresh citrus flavour, 30% tank-fermented Chenin Blanc was blended with the barrel fermented portion.
