Chameleon Cabernet/Merlot 2015, Jordan Estate

Product Description
The Chameleon Cabernet–Merlot is often coined the “Baby Cobblers Hill” for its reminiscence to the estate’s flagship red blend. Plush textured Merlot fills the framework provided by the Cabernet, leading to approachable flavours of sun-ripened plum and dark-skinned spring berries with a top-note of herbal dried mint. (2015 - 14% abv) Cabernet Sauvignon (54%), Merlot (40%), Shiraz (6%)

Fermented in overhead retort-shaped, stainless steel fermentors. Pump-overs were done three times daily during fermentation. The use of gravity and gentle pressing ensure full-flavoured wines with soft, balanced tannins. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot underwent malo-lactic fermentation in the barrel. The various portions of the blend spent 20 months in 225 litre French oak barrels (mostly Nevers and Alliers).

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 fruity accessibility of the New World with the Classic Elegance.
