Journeys End Pastors Blend Cab/Merlot Red South Africa Stellenbosch Journeys End 2009

Member Review by Lindy Hemsley:

Dark black fruit but not too fully rich. Soft mouthfeel. Easy-drinking red with some cedary oak making it rather like a fruity low-level Bordeaux.

Journeys End Vineyards are located in South Australia, an internationally renowned region noted for producing ‘sunshine in a glass’ - wines with superb, ripe fruit flavours that the world has fallen in love with. Whilst Journeys End Vineyards has a traditional Australian spread of wine styles, the wines do not come from the same vineyard site. There are of course good reasons for this, and they form the basis of Journeys End’s winemaking philosophy. Traditionally many of Australia’s vineyards were planted out to multiple grape varieties, which was partly done for practical reasons: winemakers were required to create a range of wine styles to cater for a broad customer base. Not everyone likes Chardonnay, and if you like it today you may not like it in the future. Another reason for planting a spread of grape varieties was because viticultural districts were relatively new and there was insufficient experience to know which grape varieties would produce the best wines from any area. As the Australian wine industry matured and newer plantings were made around many new sites in every State, it became apparent that some locations were better suited to specific grape varieties, due to the terroir – which was unique to their particular vineyard.
