Arriving at Hartenberg in 1993, Carl Schultz quickly realised the special nature of a gravelly, low-yielding Shiraz vineyard planted on ‘koffieklip’. This vineyard quickly found its way onto the 1997 CWG Auction and now holds the record for the longest Guild ‘accreditation’. The non-CWG version is as equally sought-after.

'This wine is certainly about a sense of place. The Gravel Hill terroir consistently provides a Shiraz that is unique in character, quality and expression.' – Hartenberg Estate

Tasting notes:
'Ripe and dense, but nicely refined, with stylish Kona coffee and mulled currant and loganberry fruit notes laced with melted licorice snap and spice. Liberally toasted, but integrated on the long, smoldering finish. Shiraz.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 91/100

'Savoury 05 dusted with white pepper, packed with black olives; plush fruit wrapped around taut core, warming 14.5% alc farewell a minor detraction. All-new oaking. From ferrous-stone-on-clay vyd.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5*

About Hartenberg Wine Estate:
Hartenberg is situated in its own self-contained valley on the slopes of the Bottelary Hills in Stellenbosch. It was created 30 years ago and has come a long way since its original poor parcel of dry gravelly soil. Hartenberg was one of the first South African estates to separately vinify grapes from a particular terroir. The 170-hectare property has a pure water source running through it, and a number of birds and animals which call Hartenberg their home. As such, the owners and staff have accepted responsibility for the conservation of the property through considered and sustainable use of all natural resources and various environmental initiatives.
