BRAND NEW RELEASE
One last snippet of exciting news for you: we are launching a brand-new wine under the JE range… the V5 Cabernet Franc 2017! Winemaker Mike Dawson describes the wine: ‘It exhibits Mediterranean minerality, savoury spice and coastal Freshness with soft but lengthy tannins. A medium bodied wine displaying olive, wild fynbos, a sweet cinnamon spice with a prolonged ripe cherry finish. Best drunk now until 2027.’ With Stellenbosch playing home to some of the best Bordeaux components in South Africa, we felt it only apt to produce this wine.
Our vineyard’s proximity to False Bay means we have a unique winemaking climate, with cooler evenings and hot dry days. Producing wine in a diurnal temperature variation zone enables us to make the very best wines, grown on a variety of soils whilst being farmed with a real focus on minimal intervention. This exciting, unique and delicious wine will be available from June 2019 onwards. www.journeysend.co.za/our-wines
