Journey’s End, Trebuchet Syrah, Stellenbosch, South Africa 2008
17.5pts/20 (91/100pts)
Named after a replica of the medieval war machine built by the winery, this is a characterful Syrah with a petrol-tinted nose with gamey, meaty tones. There’s plummy, fragrant fruit on the herby palate, which has a wild edge but fine concentration of fruit.
