Grapes for the Journey's End Destination Chardonnay 2018 were hand-picked from a 2.5ha single vineyard block in the early hours of the morning. Grapes were then sorted before being whole-bunch pressed. Only free run juice was used and was fermented naturally in a combination of 300-litre and 228-litre French oak barrels. The Destination was naturally fermented, and the wine underwent 10% malolactic fermentation. The wine was left on the fine lees and stirred frequently for a period of 10 months before being blended in a stainless steel tank, fined and bottled. The wine is fined with bentonite which means it is vegan friendly. Bottled at 14.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: The nose exhibits concentrated apricot and ripe peach with layers of lime zest and orange.

Palate: Oily on entry, with notes of vanilla, honeysuckle and stone fruits on entry.

Finish: A long-lasting creamy finish with hints of orange rind.

Journey's End, a boutique winery and vineyard on the mountain slopes above Sir Lowry’s Pass Village near Somerset West in the Helderberg basin is owned by the Gabb Family, originally from Shropshire in the UK. The Gabb family took control of the wine farm, surrounded by 20ha of vineyards, in 1995. By 2011 they had grown the estate to 120ha.
