Jordan Cobblers Hill 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

From the Jordan hillside vineyards one has spectacular panoramic views of Table Mountain, False Bay and Stellenbosch. Gary and Kathy worked internationally for two years, refining their high-energy instincts with practical experience. They returned home to build a cellar in 1992. The following year, the vines were judged ready for making wines that would carry the Jordan name. From that first year it was obvious that a new star had been added to the winemaking firmament. Continuing success has enlarged the team, with the focus on producing fiercely individual wines that combine the fruity accessibility of the New World with the Classic Elegance of the Old World. Cobblers Hill is the ultimate expression of an outstanding wine from the Stellenbosch terroir.The 2005 is a blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. The nose holds complex dark chocolate, black cherry and cassis intertwine with opulent blackberry fruit, and hints of mint and toasty vanilla. This is a big mouthfilling wine, with densely layered ripe tannins, beautifully balanced and refined - the ultimate expression of the Jordan terroir.
