Editorial Reviews for Guardian Peak Shiraz Stellenbosch
Offering up slightly musky, gamey soil driven fruit tones edged with a touch of white pepper, this was surprising at this price point.

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.
