This beautiful light salmon pink colored wine features fresh strawberries and orange blossom. A touch of barrel-fermentation adds texture and a very light spice. Deliciously drinkable.
Purchased by the Gabb family in the mid-1990s, Journey’s End is focused on sustainable production, evidenced by the estate recently joining Sustainable Wine Roundtable as a founding member to help define wine-industry global sustainability for the first time. Vines in mostly granite soils on the Hottentots Holland foothills, with breezes off False Bay, produce ‘elegant, high-quality coastal-styled’ wines, the wine team seeing their role as ‘merely guiding the fruit into the bottle’. Ethical winegrowing, a large part of the ethos, sees Journey’s End Foundation provide over 20,000 meals a week to local communities in the Helderberg.
The name Journey's End is an historical reference to the location, which is pretty much the last accessible point, heading east from Cape Town past Stellenbosch, before being confronted by the towering mountains of the Hottentots Holland Mountain Range.
