Guardian Peak Trinity 2000

Deep garnet red. Raspberries, dark chocolate, with a hint of nuttiness. Slightly smoky with well-integrated oak flavours. Full fruity palate, hints of vanilla, delicate tannin structure, with a memorable 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.
