Haute Cabriére, Franschhoek

Haute Cabriere – The Home of Pierre Jourdan wines is committed to producing still wines and Cap Classiques exclusively from the noble cultivars Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Following French tradition, the farm’s still wines are named after the property – Haute Cabriere – and the Cap Classique range is named after the original founder, Pierre Jourdan, a French Huguenot who was granted the land in 1694 and planted the first vines.

Philosophy

Cellar Master Takuan von Arnim share’s his father’s fundamental wine growing philosophy of “sun, soil, vine, man”, which revolves around the perfect harmony of nature’s elements coming together to create magic – with man playing only the role of a respectful conductor in creating a sum that’s bigger than its parts. This philosophy is embodied in the sundial that adorns the entrance to Haute Cabriere’s Tasting Room.

Haute Cabriere’s decomposed sandstone soils on the left side of the farm are ideal sites for Chardonnay, while the stony, clay-rich west facing slopes are perfect for Pinot Noir, which is known to be one of the world’s most demanding cultivars. The Haute Cabriere range is famous for the unique blend of Chardonnay Pinot Noir, while it is rounded off by the classically elegant Pinot Noir and the unconventional Unwooded Pinot Noir.

In keeping with tradition, the Pierre Jourdan Cap Classique range is produced exclusively from two noble cultivars, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; Chardonnay contributes elegance, and Pinot Noir intensity and richness. According to the traditional method, all Pierre Jourdan Cap Classiques are fermented in the bottle and left in contact with the yeast for as long as possible allowing for the development of extra charm and complexity. The fine natural sparkle produced by the fermentation in the bottle, is experienced like a feather on the tongue, turning the fine mousse into a burst of flavour.
