A rich, warming and layered Stellenbosch Cabernet from Journey's End Vineyards.
Handpicked and hand-sorted, then matured in a mix of predominately French new and used oak barrels for 16 months. There is a core of typical Cabernet Sauvignon blackcurrant cassis flavours backed up rich plums, a savouriness, white pepper and mixed spice notes. The tannins are velvety smooth and the acidity well balanced. A big but well judged wine with complexity and a long finish.
This is a wine for big, full-on meals such as steak, roast beef or a big stew. A wine that will keep and change over the next few years.
