Shiraz 2020, Guardian Peak

£11.60 per bottle

About this wine

The 2020 Guardian Peak Shiraz displays fragrant violets and black cherry with black pepper and toast. Spicy tannins and juicy fruit on the palate. Good balance of sweet and savoury spice – cardamom and coriander seed balance Christmas-cake spice to round out crushed berry fruit and dark chocolate on the finish.

Ageing potential: This wine shows a wonderful structure for a wine best consumed at a young age.

Food pairing: A great partner with steaks, burgers and BBQ ribs.

Alcohol: 14.2% ABV

    string(832) "Also known as Syrah, Shiraz was the variety which introduced the world to the concentrated and masculine wines of 1990s’ Australia. Here in the Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale it produces wines of great density and richness. In South Africa there tends to be more structure and freshness with earthy tannins. It is a variety which alters in the bottle very much as a result of the individual winemaker’s philosophy, as well as reflecting the unique terroir of the estates. Great with oak, it offers lavender, kirsch, black cherry and cured meat aromas and flavours. In its native Northern Rhône it is famous for the wines of Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, whilst in the New World can lay claim to providing Australia with its two most famous wines; Henschke’s Hill of Grace and Penfold’s Grange."
