Tasting notes:
'Lovely steely apple and fragrant fresh lime with a bone dry freshness, a racy acidity and a smooth texture.' – Decanter World Wine Awards 2019, 91/100

'At six grams, the residual sugar on this ageworthy, good-value Riesling is a little higher than usual and is complemented by a touch of exotic botrytis. Aged on its lees, this has some colour from skin contact, notes of lime and citrus and a hint of oak spice. Drink 2019-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 90/100

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.
