SMG 2016, Guardian Peak

£17.55 per bottle

About this wine

Since 2001, Guardian Peak SMG is a classic blend of Rhone varieties (66% Syrah, 24% Mourvèdre & 10% Grenache) and expresses perfectly how formidable yet uncomplicated this style of wine can be.  The 2016 SMG has a pronounced fragrance of bright cranberry and fresh red plum which jumps out of the glass. Spicy and savoury aromas follow with pepper, all spice, and toasty notes weaving together elegantly. The palate is rich and juicy but not heavy, with ripe, textured tannins balanced by fresh acidity. Red fruit flavours combine with black cherry, liquorice, and savoury notes of cured meat to create good complexity. Medium bodied with a refined, dry finish.
