Journey's End Huntsman 2020 consists of 54% Shiraz, 20% Mourvedre, 20% Grenache and 6% Viognier. Grapes were hand-picked in the morning and stored overnight in the cold room. 70% of the Shiraz and all the Mourvedre underwent traditional fermentation. The Shiraz and Mourvedre fermentations took about 15 days to complete at 20-25˚C in automated rotational tanks which submerge the skins using a very gentle action (ensuring soft tannins). The remaining 30% of Shiraz was subjected to a carbonic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation of both red varieties took place in barrels and the wine was left to mature for a further 12 months before being blended. The 2020 Viognier was vinified separately and added to the blend which was then fined, stabilised, and filtered in preparation for bottling. The wine is fined with bentonite which means it is vegan friendly. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Expressive aromatics of violets, redcurrant and cherries with hints of white pepper and liquorice.

Palate: Juicy layers of red and dark berries come through on the palate, with an elegant soft powdery tannic structure.

Finish: Smooth with lingering notes of sweet spice and prunes.

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.
