45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42 Shiraz, 13% Merlot. Guardian Peak Wines brought to you by the dynamic partnership of Jean Engelbrecht and Ernie Els, and made by internationally acclaimed winemaker, Louis Strydom.
This unique blend combines the mulberry and plum fruit of Tauriga Nacional with the rich raspberry and chocolate aromas of Cabernet Sauvignon, creating a wine with ample soft tannins and a spicy finish.
Overgaauw is a wine estate of distinction situated on south facing slopes overlooking the Stellenbosch Valley. Deep granite soils and cool sea breezes enable the ideal cultivation of noble grape varieties. The resultant wines are nurtured to perfection by the inherited passion and experience of four generations of Van Velden winemakers.
100% Shiraz mostly from vineyards in�the Faure area of Stellenbosch as well as Helderberg and�Bottelary hills sites. Dark ruby with a vibrant pink rim. Generous red fruit with hints of cassis and pepper on the nose. Sumptuous entry with concentrated mulberry and fleshy plum fruit and white pepper well integrated with oak spice intrigue to the long succulent fruity finish. Soft ripe tannins give fullness and richness to the wine making it exceptionally easy to drink, whilst still retaining structure to support at least 5 years in the bottle.

The farm was named in 1704 when the settlers returned from an arduous journey to find their livestock gone and their home burnt down - hence the name Allesverloren meaning "all is lost". Present Owner, Danie Malan is the fifth generation on the farm, continuing the winemaking tradition of his forefathers who acquired the farm in 1872.
