FRESH, DRY WHITES

Fresh, dry whites (under £15) - THE REAL McCOY, Dry Riesling, Jordan. Western Cape, South Africa

2016 THE REAL McCOY, Dry Riesling, Jordan. W. Cape, South Africa

Bin: 96
Alcohol Percentage: 12%
Area: A cool climate is key to great Riesling and this is the Jordan explanation of their success:
"Stellenbosch Kloof enjoys a cooler Mediterranean climate with maritime influences from False Bay, 14km to the south, and a refreshing breeze channelled from the West Coast’s Benguela current 24km to the north-west. These two breezes culminate at the top end of the ravine and bring in early morning mists, especially from False Bay. Consequently, temperatures in our meso-climate can be measured at least 3° Celsius cooler than inland Stellenbosch during ripening periods."
They also include a small proportion of grapes from (even cooler) Elgin, to the south east
Grape Variety: 100% Riesling fermented cool in stainless steel, to maximise freshness
Producer: Gary and Kathy Jordan run an immaculate winery in a stunning location overlooking both the Stellenbosch vineyards and Cape Town. They are the modern face of South Africa, making clean, elegant, genuinely 'fine' wines
Old Bridge Rating: There's actually nearly 10 grammes per litre of residual sugar in here, but you would never know - the freshness and purity is thrilling, particularly at this price point.
