Guardian Peak Lapa Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Appearance: Dark Opaque

Aroma:Eucalyptus aromas are prominent with a hint of pencil lead, characteristic to Cabernet Sauvignon.

Palate: Rich, ripe tannins come to the fore backed up by a powerful middle palate. This wine shows great structure complimented by a long, lengthy finish.

Impression: Jean Engelbrecht''s appreciation for Napa Styled Cabernet Sauvignons is the inspiration behind this wine. It will develop and mature beautifully over the next few years.

in the vineyard : 
Mediterranean with the rainfall +- 650mm per annum, the vineyards are located high on the northern slopes of the Helderberg Mountain This contribution imparts warmer fruit flavour to the wine. In summer, the vineyards close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean result in cool sea breezes that keep the temperatures lower, extending the ripening period
