Wine with a story

Journey’s End, one of South Africa’s most sustainable and experimental wineries, is revamping its range of wines to give clear differentiation between its three series – Tales, V and Precision – while maintaining a consistent theme across the family of wines.

JOURNEY’S END TALES SERIES

Don’t you just love the stories behind the labels? The new (and very appealing) labels on the  Journey’s End Tales Series tell the story behind each wine. So Weather Station Sauvignon Blanc 2018 (all ripe fruit and full flavours), is named after the ‘Weerstasie Kloon’ (Weather Station clone) in Stellenbosch where the SB11 Sauvignon Blanc clone was first propagated in the 1920s.

Haystack Chardonnay 2018 (for those who love oak and fruit wines) is named after the age-old practice of planting wheat between the rows of vines. The Huntsman – Shiraz Mourvèdre Viognier 2017 (full bodied and smoothly luscious) is named after the original kennels the Gabb family found on their farm dating back to 1822, and where the Journey’s End winery now stands. Pastor’s Blend – Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc 2018 (elegant and versatile) pays homage to the Reverend from the local village of Sir Lowry’s Pass who regularly delivers Sunday communion at the foot of the Journey’s End vineyard. You’ll find these four wines at good local bottlestores. (Oh … and watch out for the new look V Series and Precision Series from Journey’s End later in the year … well worth waiting for.)
