Grapes for the Journey's End Shiraz 2020 were hand-harvested from block 13 resting on South facing slopes consisting of Tukulu and Glenrosa soil types. 90% of the grapes were subjected to destemming and sorting prior to a cold settling at 8˚C for a period of 72 hours before undergoing fermentation conducted at 24˚C. Pump-overs were used for flavour, aroma, colour and tannin extraction. 10% of the grapes were subjected to immediate carbonic fermentation as whole bunches at 30˚C. Along with alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation was completed in stainless steel tank before the wine was transferred into a combination of French (10% new, 60% second and third-fill) and American (5% new, 25% second and third-fill) for 18 months. This wine required no stabilising and is vegan friendly. Filtered and bottled on 26 January 2021. Residual sugar: 3.27g/l. Bottled at 14%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: An expressive aromatic delivery of blackcurrants and violets with white pepper and notes of dried coriander.

Palate: This wine showcases its carbonic component which adds an element of playful candified fruit while softening the tannins for easy drinkability.

Finish: A silky long-lasting finish.
