In 1995 the Gabb family (originally from Shropshire, UK) took control of this picturesque wine farm surrounded by 20 ha of gorgeous vineyards. They have invested heavily in both the vineyards and the winery since then – with the estate growing to 120ha by July 2011.

The initial Journey’s End investment was made by Roger Gabb, who, at that time, was Founder and Managing Director of Western Wines. Following the sale of Western Wines to Constellation brands in 2006, the family turned their focus to their estate, Journey’s End. Upon taking the helm in 2007, Roger’s son Rollo has since invested further into the estate through vineyard purchases and infrastructure.

The grapes were handpicked between 22 to 24° balling, early in the morning so that low temperatures ensured minimal oxidation and preventative action against spontaneous fermentations. After the grapes were hand-sorted and destemmed, they were lightly pressed. The juice was left to settle for 72 hours enzymatically before it was pumped into stainless steel tanks. Different yeasts were used to enhance the flavour profile of the wine. Fermentation took about 18 days at 16 – 22 ˚C. After fermentation, a third of the wine was oak matured in 300L older French oak barrels, a third in stainless steel tanks with staves and a third in stainless steel tanks with no wood contact. After oak maturation for 6 months, the three components were blended together, fined and bottled.

Clear and bright straw coloured with a hint of green. Oak and fruit are perfectly matched, with citrus peel, lime and melon flavours on the palate. The balance between creaminess and freshness makes for a food-friendly wine, ideal with sushi, creamy dishes and seafood. Drink now and up until 2022.
