The Guardian Peak brand, founded by the Engelbrecht family four generations ago and currently run by Jean Engelbrecht, from South Africa is designed to compliment those who enjoy a healthy, active, outdoor lifestyle, and their wines are crafted to be accessible in both style and price. According to Wine Spectator "South Africa's best wines are a combination of New World style with Old World elegance." Lifestyle is always a priority in the Cape Winelands region where Guardian Peak is produced and the range of wines from Shiraz and Merlot to unique red blends is is flexible and dynamic to enjoy anytime and anywhere.
Guardian Peak's Frontier Cabernet Sauvignon shows a beautifully complex nose, with aromas of fresh plum, subtle blueberries and an underlying lead pencil note that comes to the fore. The fresh red fruit and hints of ripe dark fruit flavors are backed up by a toasty, hazelnut character that rounds off the flavor profile.
From South Africa's famed Stellenbosch region, this Merlot contains soft fruit flavors, which deliver a juicy and highly accessible wine. Smooth and inviting, this wine is most rewarding when enjoyed early with good food.
