Journey's End Pastors Blend 2014
A blend of 67 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 23 % Merlot and 10 % Cabernet Franc. A well-judged partnership of the classic Bordeaux varieties, resulting in an elegant, harmonious wine for earlier drinking rather than long cellaring. Juicy plums and brambleberries, a savoury spice dusting from the oak, some dried herbs, giving it versatility for a range of food dishes.
Among the long rolling south-facing slopes of the Stellenbosch winelands, caressed by cool coastal breezes, lies the boutique winery and vineyard, Journey’s End. With only a handful of premium, hand-crafted wines produced here, the focus is very much on quality. No more than 25,000 dozen bottles of estate wine are produced in a typical vintage – many of which regularly collect trophies on the international circuit. In fact, thanks to its sea-facing slopes, excellent soils and the exceptional wines emerging from the general area, the Schapenberg terroir has begun to draw comparison with the likes of Bordeaux.
