Guardian Peak Cabernet Sauvignon/Syrah 2000

Intense ruby red. Rich aromas with an array of ripe cherry and blackberry, exotically spiced. Palate packed with these flavours – deeply concentrated. Almost explosively mouth filling, with a fine tannin finish.
As the lion represents a sense of being guardian, Guardian Peak watches over the fruitful vineyards of the Cape. Made by the people of the award-winning R&V wines, this refreshing wine can be enjoyed during unpretentious dining together with good company.
