Offering up slightly musky, gamey soil driven fruit tones edged with a touch of white pepper, this was surprising at this price point. Restrained, cool climate aromatics lead to a fresh, easy drinking palate with really good acid cut and admirable purity to the fresh plum and dark berry flavors. Not complicated but not confected either, this offers solid, straight forward, easy drinking enjoyment.

Guardian Peak Shiraz 2008: Dieser vielschichtige Shiraz leuchtet kaminrot und duftet expressiv nach Pflaumen und schwarzen Johannisbeeren mit einer Spur Zimt. Am Gaumen zeigen sich beachtliche Fruchtaromen von Kirschen, wozu sich Aromen von Mokka und Gewürzen sowie mineralische Noten hinzugesellen. Die Würznoten zeigen sich vom Auftakt bis zum lang anhaltenden Finale. Ein körperreicher und vollmundiger Wein mit einem gelungenen Spiel zwischen Frucht und würzigen Holzaromen. Dieser Rotwein schmeckt hervorragend zu Gerichten wie Cape-Malay Curry-Huhn oder Rumpsteak.

Wine Tasting Notes Deep crimson red. Very forthcoming on the nose. Fruit aromas of plum and blackcurrant. Cinnamon, spices and a minerality add to this amazing bouquet. The spiciness carries through onto the palate. Luscious berry flavors, notably cherry, dominate the palate, with gentle mocha undertones. Rich and expressive, this wine has presence. A full-bodied Shiraz, it displays good integration between fruit and wood, and its lingering finish suggests it to be a rewarding wine for drinking and enjoying with food.
