Fodor's The Complete Guide to African Safaris
At the end of Stellenbosch Kloof Road, this meticulous winery, flanked by the Bottelary hills, overlooks rolling vineyards and jagged mountains. Husband-and-wife team Gary and Kathy Jordan studied at the University of California at Davis and worked at California's Iron Horse Winery. The family made its fortune producing practical shoes, and although it produced its first vintage only in 1992, it has already established a formidable reputation. The sauvignon blanc, with refreshing hints of asparagus, makes for good summer drinking, and the multi-award-winning dense but fruity chardonnay is extremely popular and has regulars stocking up on cases at a time. The two are combined in the versatile, flavorful, and well-priced Chameleon dry white. Other wines to try are the Cobblers Hill Bordeaux blend and the Sophia CWG (Cape Winemakers Guild) Auction Reserve 2005 vintage, which is laden with awards.
