Winery:

Journeys End winemaker, Ben Riggs likes to run a number of different types of ferments, which also gives him additional blending options. In the winemaking process, there are no fixed rules as to the amount of new or old oak that is used. French, American, Russian or other. Each season demands a different proportion of new and old oak and different degrees of charring or even ‘hot water bending’ of the staves. Consequently, a variety of top quality barrels are selected to enhance the fruit of each wine and add further ‘layers’ of complexity.
