Tasting notes:
'The list of really good Merlots in South Africa is a comparatively short one, but this is certainly a candidate, especially in the value-for-money category. Elegant, floral, polished and well balanced, it's a ripe, supple style with supple tannins and perfumed, 45% new wood. Drink 2020-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 93/100

'Lovely nose of ripe cassis, herbal nuances and dark chocolate. Soft and juicy texture, warming alcohol. Very modern.' – Decanter Wolrd Wine Awards 2019, 88/100

'Red fruit, dried plum and cranberries on the nose with hints of mint and dried herbs. Elegant palate with silky tannins and an elegant long finish.' – Winemaker

Alc: 14.2%

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. It was Carl Schultz, Hartenberg’s Winemaker, who saw the potential in ‘The Gravel Hill’ and noted the superiority of the grapes that were grown there. Hartenberg was thus 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. They have various initiatives in place to ensure an environment where nature thrives.
