Jordan 'The Real Mccoy' Riesling 2015

Jordan 'The Real Mccoy' Riesling 2015

Ref: A132615

Intense flavours of lime through to white peach and Granny Smith apple. A superb accompaniment to the lighter spectrum of Asian cuisine.

The name 'The Real McCoy' celebrates the legislative change regarding the naming of Riesling in South Africa.

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 mari-time 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.

The Riesling vineyards (300m above sea level, 27 year old vines) were harvested at between 20.9 - 21.5 degrees B. The grapes were pressed in a pneumatic press with the free run juice being separated from the press fraction. After 2 days of settling in tank the clear juice was racked off its lees and inoculated with a French strain of yeast. Cold fermentation at 15 degrees Celsius occurred in stainless steel tanks until the perfect balance between the Residual Sugar and acidity was reached. The fermentation in this vintage was stopped at about 0 degrees B to retain a hint of natural residual sugar.

Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 2014, Jean-Marc Morey
A fantastic white Burgundy from Jean-Marc Morey, Côte de Beaune, which exhibits a purity of rich fruit (coupled with a mouth-tingling freshness) that is rare to find.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Doucinello 2011
Vacqueyras Cuve Doucinello 2011
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.
