The ultimate expression of Jordan terroir. The Nine Yards Chardonnay is made in a Reserve Style, from a barrel selection from our best vineyard site. Stylistically different to our Jordan Chardonnay, with this wine we went “The Whole Nine Yards”!

Situated between 250 – 280m above sea level, this 27 year old, site-specific vineyard is planted to both Burgundian and Davis clone Chardonnay. East-facing Hutton and Glenrosa soils, innovative canopy management and low crop levels ensure that the vineyard produces smaller berries with concentrated citrus flavours.

Crushed and pressed immediately after de-stemming, the juice was barrel-fermented in traditional 228-litre French oak barrels (70% new and 30% second fill) from selected Burgundian coop- erages (Damy, Chassin and Rousseau). The barrels were inoculated with a selection of French yeast. A percentage of the wine went through natural fermentation.

The wine was matured “sur lie” for 10 months, with regular barrel-rolling to accentuate the rich, leesy character.
