Jordan Excels In 2022 Platter Results!

The team at Jordan were ecstatic to receive the results from the 2022 edition of the Platter Wine Guide, receiving two 5-star ratings for the Jordan Insiders Cabernet Franc 2019 and the Jordan CWG Sophia 2018! 

The Cape Winemakers Guild (CWG) is an association of leading South African winemakers producing wines of exceptional quality exclusively for the annual CWG Auction. The CWG wines undergo rigorous screening and only wines showing technical excellence and maturation potential are selected for the auction, ensuring that each wine offered under the CWG Auction label is of exceptional quality. 

Sjaak Nelson, Winemaker of Jordan produces the Cabernet Franc each year, exclusively for the Insiders Wine Club Members. “I am so pleased to be awarded a 5 star for this wine. This vineyard has matured over the years to provide us with this great fruit to make this stunning wine”.

“Not only did we receive two 5-star ratings, but also eight 4.5 star ratings! This consistency of quality is testament to the effort and dedication of the Jordan team working together in both the cellar and the vineyards” says Kathy Jordan.

“Ending the year on a high note with another 5 star accolade for this classic Bordeaux-style wine”, says Gary Jordan. And we couldn’t agree more!
