Journey's End is a Gabb family cellar cradled in the foothills of the Hottentot Mountains, overlinking stunning False Bay.

The Name "Weather Station" is derived from the first two clones of Sauvignon Blanc that were planted in Sout Africa in the mid 17th century. These closes were nicknamed 'The Weather Station' as the original plantings were made beside an old weather station This station proved invaluable in enabling the farms to spot oncoming changes in the weather and thus pick their fruit in its optimum condition.

Grapes were handpicked early in the morning to retain the delicate fruit flavours. Grapes come from an 8 ha block with 4 different clones and separate irrigation systems. This block is the highest block on the farm at 200 m above sea level. Bunches are hand sorted, destemmed and crushed as gently as possible. After crushing, the grapes undergo four hours of skin contact inside of the press to enhance flavour extraction. The juice is settled until clear before racked and cold fermented (10 ‒ 14 ̊C) for almost 1 month in stainless steel tanks to enhance the typical varietal characters. After fermentation, the wine is left on the lees for 4 months with regular battonage before being racked, fined and stabilized.

Has the pale straw colour of youth, with a tinge of green. A complex wine, thereʼs melon and grapefruit on a bed of apple and Bosche pear, with a seam of freshness giving vitality and extending the flavours. Reflecting the vintage, this shows perfectly ripe fruit, full flavoured and round. Full of character and delicious.
