Guardian Peak Frontier 2008 - Ernie-Els Wines: Guardian Peak Frontier 2008 - Rotwein von Ernie-Els WinesDie drei Rebsorten zusammen ergeben eine seltene Fülle an Aromen und verleihen dem Guardian Peak Frontier seinen starken Charakter. Innerhalb der nächsten fünf Jahre wird er sich weiterentwickeln und an Weichheit und Schönheit weiter zunehmen. Im Glas leuchtet er Rubinrot und duftet zunächs. nach mineralischen Aromen und dann nach klaren, deutlichen Noten von Blaubeeren und Früchtekuchen. Der Wein beachtlich gut ausbalanciert, wobei ihn die gut integrierten Tannine, seine elegante Struktur zu einem besonderen Genuss machen. Eignet sich zu rosa gebratenem dunklen Fleisch, Wildgeflügel mit Fruchtsoßen, Pasta Gerichte mit Tomatensaucen und Risotto mit Pilzen.Weingut: Ernie-Els WinesLand: SüdafrikaRegion: StellenboschRebsorten: 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Shiraz, 17% MerlotAlkoholgehalt: 14,75 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,5 g/lRestsüße: 5,5 g/lInhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (10 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 3 Jahre ab Jahrgang Auszeichnungen des Guardian Peak Frontier 2008:4 Platter Stars Rotwein > Südafrika > Stellenbosch


Winemaker's Notes:

Appearance: Bright ruby red. Bouquet: Offers aromas of strawberries, candy floss and dark ripe cherries. Shows sleek oak spice and a delicate smoked bacon essence infused with a leathery feel from the Shiraz. Palate: Refined with good body and a richly structured mid palate. Shiraz seems to dominate the palate and gives a juicy feel to the wine. Impression: The three varietals each contribute unique flavours and character to the wine to make this a wonderful drinking experience. The wine will mature and soften beautifully over the next 5 years.
