Journey’s End Vineyards is a boutique estate situated on the south-west facing slopes of the famous Schapenberg Hills above Sir Lowry’s Pass Village in the Helderberg basin.
The picturesque farm with a unique microclimate and exceptional terroir was purchased by the Gabb Family originally from Shropshire, UK in 1995, with a focus on ethically and sustainably producing wines of excellence.
Complex and layered, a fusion of redcurrants, brambleberries, violets and pepper entice the senses, with a touch of smokiness and dark chocolate. Generous oak ageing in larger format barrels allows the vineyard character to shine, with great natural acidity and a silky long-lasting finish. Elegant, smooth and rounded with beautifully integrated tannins, enjoy now and until 2029.
Enjoy on its own or with hearty winter dishes like: Beef Bourguignon, Braised Lamb Shanks, Oxtail Stew, Venison Pie, Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs, Beef Steak au Poivre, Barbecue-Glazed Chicken, Baked Chorizo Gnocchi, Wild Mushroom Risotto, Lentil Bolognaise, Pepperoni Pizza and Pasta Carbonara. Also delicious with savoury cheeses like smoked gouda, aged cheddar and Parmigiano-Reggiano as well as blue cheese, and heavenly with some dark chocolate.
