The Guardian Peak Cabernet Sauvignon displays classic Black Currant and ripe Raspberry flavours with a hint of oak shavings. The concentrated Dark fruit and Milk Chocolate flavours give this Cabernet a powerful and elegant balance. This wine shows a wonderful structure for a wine best consumed at a young age.
The Guardian Peak Merlot displays fresh, ripe red fruit flavours of Figs and Plums supported by soft, discreet tannins which create a well-balanced, elegant Merlot with a round, juicy finish. This wine shows wonderful structure for a wine best consumed at a young age.
Expressive dark fruits on the nose - blackberry, black cherry and mocha with sweet baking spices. Juicy fruit follows on the palate with sweet black fruit and bright cherry flavours supported by fresh acidity and notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Well integrated oak and smooth tannins make this medium bodied Shiraz infinitely drinkable.
The Guardian Peak Sauvignon Blanc is deliciously
refreshing and zesty. Fragrant tropical fruit aromas of passion fruit and guava are interlaced with notes of lime and white peach. Light bodied and fresh on the palate with crisp acidity that balances the bold tropical and citrus fruit flavours.
I have a great respect for Napa Cabernet Sauvignon as I appreciate the art of their balance in such powerful wine. This wine was made to see how close we can come to a Napa style Cabernet Sauvignon in Stellenbosch.
