Gary & Kathy Jordan are thrilled with the results. This is what they had to say:
“Being awarded the Grand Cru National Champion Best in Class for the Jordan ‘The Real McCoy’ Riesling for the third time in a row is an affirmation that we are taking our highest and coolest vineyards seriously, and with a variety that is experiencing a resurgence of interest from serious wine lovers. The Jordan Chameleon Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot has also once again received the Grand Cru Best in Class award, a seriously good wine that over-delivers in abundance.” Kathy Jordan.

“An incredible team effort from vineyard to cellar has, over the years, enabled Jordan Wine Estate to claim consistency across vintages and varietals for all the wines that we make. We are delighted to once again and for the 9th time, accept a ‘Vineyard Consistency Award’ for our wines that are the ultimate Synergy between Soul and Soil.” Gary Jordan
