Behind the scenes: Jordan Insiders Sophia 2014 launch

On Wednesday 5th December, the Jordan Insider members were treated to a stunning evening on the tasting deck under the oaks, on a beautiful summer evening, at Jordan.  A harvest table laden with food from The Bakery at Jordan, included freshly baked breads, cheeses and meats, olives, with homemade pâtés, preserves and spreads.

Gary Jordan, a passionate Geologist and Winemaker, had the members mesmerised as he introduced the Sophia 2014, a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc.  He spoke of the origins of this wine, the uniqueness of the estate’s terroir, which he knows so intimately, as well as the exciting future plans for the estate.

Sophia, meaning wisdom in Greek, is presented on the label with an owl on her shoulder, symbolising wisdom. In her right hand she holds a laurel wreath, the symbol of peace and success. Her three daughters, the Saints Faith, Hope and Charity or Love – Pistis, Elpis and Agape – are symbolised by the sun, moon and earth, representing the characteristics of the three classic Bordeaux varieties that make up this exceptional wine.

This wine is available exclusively at the tasting room at the estate, and can be tasted as part of our Reserve Wine Tasting, together with the Nine Yards Chardonnay 2016 and Cobblers Hill 2015.
