We were fortunate enough to be able to bring 24 bottles of wine from South Africa this year. Some of our friends asked how did you do that? I thought you could only bring back a few bottles through customs? Well, that is mostly true. You have two options, do not declare the wine or declare the bottles and potentially pay a duty. We have brought many cases of wine from many parts of the world. We always declare and have never had to pay a duty.
The last Thursday in Stellenbosch we spent the afternoon visiting a couple of tasting rooms. Jordan Wine Estate was one. The estate is beautiful. At the facility, they have a restaurant, bakery, suites, and conference rooms. You can think of them as a one-stop facility. Eat, drink, be merry. No worries about driving, stay with us.

Chris and I enjoyed the Outlier. The barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc added to the mouthfeel (making it more full-bodied) of the wine. I rated the 2014 Jordan Wine Estate The Outlier white wine four glasses.
Life is too short to drink crappy wine. Expand your palate and keep trying.
