Food Pairings for Journeys End Cabernet Sauvignon
Located in Stellenbosch, with vineyards adjacent to Vergelegen and Morgenster, Journey's End is right at the heart of one of the cape's most exciting terroirs; bought and replanted by the Gabb family in 1996, the last ten years have seen the estate grow into one of the most talked about in the region. The wines have won accolades and medals at wine competitions around the world ever since the maiden vintages of the Cabernet and Chardonnay achieved 4 and 5 star ratings from the prestigious John Platter Guide in 2004. The philosophy in both the vineyards and cellar follows a minimum intervention approach to ensure the quality of the fruit shines through. In this Cabernet Sauvignon the powerful ripe fruit is lush and fleshy on both the nose and palate, with lots of ripe cassis and backed by dark chocolate. Eucalyptus, green peppery herbal spice and underlying mintyness come forth and is backed by some sweet almonds. It is voluptuously rich but not over-jammy and the mid-acidity brightens the fruit and gives length to the wine. This is best enjoyed with meats and cheese.
