Gary and Kathy Jordan have been making world-class wines since 1993 on a farm with a history going back over 300 years. He's a geologist, she's an economist - together this husband and wife team is a phenomenon. Gary's parents, Ted and Sheelagh, bought the 146 hectare Stellenbosch property in 1982, and embarked on an extensive replanting programme, specializing in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes. 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 Read more »

  • Interesting, I've been traveling a lot for work lately and seeing a variety of wine lists this list has a few surprises beyond the champagne.  First I was surprised by Jordan being first (assuming this is a ranked list), as I haven't seen them a lot, which is ok by me as I'm not a huge fan.  I'm not surprised by the big names that were on there,...

  • I am surprised to see a Champagne house on the list..Well it's Veuve Clicquot.The others are kind of interesting too. Jordan is actually a decent wine and I'm surprised it made the list. Chat St. Michelle is on there because they actually produce good stuff for really low prices. Caymus, Silver Oak, and Kistler are oak-bombs that people seem to ... Read More

GregT has mentioned elsewhere to me about Qupe Central Coast syr... Read More

  • 15 years ago, before I retired, I had a couple of bottles of Chevalier de Bayard. It was the best tasting wine I'd ever had. But now that I'm on a fixed income, I can no longer spend $25 on a bottle of wine.Does anybody have any ideas of what wines are close to it but less expensive?Thank you  Read More

  • On Tuesday I wrote with great pleasure about a group of Cabernets that were right about $25 a bottle, some less. They represented much of what I look for in Cabernet, and at an affordable price. Today I turn my sights to wines that promise much more. At least they are priced in such a way as to promise much more, not that they always deliver.  T... Read More
