Ernie Els Guardian Peak Merlot 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Appearance: Bright, ruby red. Bouquet: The nose of this youthful wine is dominated by an intense showing of ripe plum and cherry aromas. This is backed-up by toffee and mocha which is extracted from the oak. Palate: This wine offers up-front fruit and a good length of cherry flavours. The ripe fruit is complimented by an elegant chocolate flavour. This juicy and chewy wine offers a medium to long finish which is provided by its intriguing balance of fruit-flavour and complexity.

Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Guardian Peak Merlot 2008: Der elegante Merlot leuchtet im Glas rubinrot. Das Bukett dieses jugendlichen Weines wird von intensiven Aromen reifer Pflaumen und Kirschen dominiert, welche von Karamell und Mokka umspielt werden, die durch die Fassreife entstehen. Am Gaumen zeigt er sich mit viel Frucht und einer guten Länge, die von Kirschen untermalt wird. Die reife Frucht wird von eleganten Schokoladennoten unterstrichen und wird sich in den nächsten zwei bis drei Jahren noch herrlich entwickeln. Aber auch jetzt bereitet dieser Rotwein ein schönes Trinkvergnügen.
