Tasting notes:
'Harvested with a little botrytis in 2018, this reliably impressive Riesling comes from a single parcel on the farm at Hartenberg. Engagingly bone dry, with some phenolics from short skin contact, it's very much an Alsace style with lime and kerosene notes and a lively, refreshing finish. Drink 2020-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100

'Intense orange blossom, lanolin, citrusy notes, also honeyed and hints of yellow straw on the bouquet. Super fresh on entry, lemon, lime cordial flavours intermingled with chalky flavours. The palate expresses in a linear fashion, with wonderful definition.' – Winemaker

Alc: 13.6% | RS: 1.97 g/L | TA: 6.91 g/L | PH: 3.01

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.

Producer information 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.
