Roving Sommelier is passionate about premium quality regional South African wines. Journey’s End is a Gabb Family cellar cradled in the foothills of the Hottentot Mountains, overlooking stunning False Bay. Here lies a winelands paradise blessed with great views, a great climate and an abundance of indigenous bird and plant life.

The Huntsman bears reference to the original Cape Hunt that was founded in 1822. With hounds imported from Gloucestershire, England, it has the distinction of being the oldest New World Hunt today. The site where the original kennels stood sits at Journey’s End and is where in 2010, we laid the foundations and subsequently built our family’s winery.

Handpicked, these three varietals were individually fermented using a combination of traditional and modern methods – a happy marriage between Old and New World winemaking techniques. The traditionally made components structure, grip, and backbone to the palate while carbonic ferments adds complexity, candied fruit and floral aromatics whilst softening the palate too.

Delicious as is either on its own or with food, and in a convivial atmosphere.
