Fodor's Review

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; the multi-award-winning, dense but fruity Chardonnay is extremely popular and has regulars stocking up on cases at a time. The 2013 Chardonnay won the Decanter wine of the year award. The Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are combined in the versatile, flavorful, and well-priced Chameleon dry white. Another wine to try is the Cobblers Hill Bordeaux blend. The wine estate has an excellent restaurant on-site, as well as a bakery where you can have breakfast or a light lunch. Cellar tours are available by appointment; book at least a day ahead.
