Journey's End Cape Doctor Bordeaux Blend 2016


(R1,650.00 for 6 x 750ml)

Only produced in the most exceptional years.
Deep fruitcake richness on the nose, cinnamon and nutmeg spices, followed by a perfectly balanced, silky smooth, streamlined body. Misleadingly accessible, despite the current appeal, there is enough underlying power for a long future ahead.

The Cape Doctor is the local name for the strong south-eastern wind that blows from False Bay and funnels through to Cape Town and Blouberg. The Doctor works his magic by blowing away smog and impurities, clearing the skies and making way for some fresh sea air.

Because it can play havoc with the vines at flowering, it is often cited as a negative factor for winemakers.  At Journey’s End, though, it has a beneficial effect of long ripening periods for the grapes, which produces concentrated berries with fantastically firm acidity. It also minimises the risk of any fungal diseases on the vines (Just try spawning in a 65KMpH wind!).
