More about this wine from W.O. Coastal-Stellenbosch, South Africa
Nestled among rolling hills and ocean breezes, Journey's End Winery is a beacon of excellence in the world of winemaking. "Haystack" is a tribute to the rugged beauty and natural wonders of the South African coast. It's a nod to the towering rock formations that stand as silent sentinels against the crashing waves, shaping the landscape and the character of the wine.

The vines are grown on 350-million-year-old decomposed granite soils, creating one of the most prestigious terroirs in South Africa. As well as fantastic views, the vineyards also benefit from the cooling and cleansing south-easterly wind, known locally as the ‘Cape Doctor’, which comes in from nearby False Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

Clear and bright, straw with a hint of green. Oak and fruit are perfectly matched, each having its say without dominating; citrus peel and melon enriched by a subtle, savoury biscuit overlay. The limey acidity seamed through the fruit flavours gives food-friendly freshness and promises a few years’ ageing potential.
How to drink it

Pro Tip:

Treat yourself to a luxurious bowl of creamy shrimp linguine. The creamy richness of the pasta dish enhances the wine's velvety texture, while the Chard's acidity cuts through the richness, creating a balanced and satisfying pairing.
