Jordan 2009 The Outlier (Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc) Description Spectacular panoramic views of Stellenbosch and Cape Town, cool hillside vineyards planted to classic varieties, and a modern family-run winery have combined to produce distinctive wines displaying the ripe concentrated fruity accessibility of the New World, with the complex elegance of classic wine styles. Variety  100 % Sauvignon Blanc. Vineyards  The vineyards are situated on a geological outlier ? underlying quartzite formations are surrounded by 600 million-year old granite. The south -facing vineyards are 9 ? 27 years old and from 220m to 365m above sea level. Harvest Date  The grapes were harvested between 23rd February and 18th March 2009. Winemaking  The grapes received 6 ? 10 hours skin contact before being gently pressed in a ?pneumatic? tank press. After inoculation the juice was fermented in 60% new and 40% second-fill barrels (mostly Nevers and Alliers with a 10% American Oak barrel selection to add a spicy character). The wine spent 8 months ?sur lie? with occasional ?batonage? to accentuate the leesy character. 28% tank-fermented Sauvignon Blanc was added to the blend. Tasting Notes  Our endeavor to produce a benchmark Sauvignon Blanc is expressed in this unique wine. Ripe fig, gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours are complemented by the gentle smoky vanilla nuances of oak, a true ?outlier?. Analysis Alc: 13.0%         TA: 6.0g/l         pH: 3.40         RS: 2.0g/l
