The Megan is a tribute to Megan Mackenzie, wife of Ken "Stork" Mackenzie whose family still owns Hartenberg Wine Estate. Megan met Ken whilst still at school and once time passed, they got married, and so started a twenty-four-year love story. Initially assisting in the family business, but also a celebrated harpist, Megan sowed the early seeds for the decision to later buy Hartenberg Wine Estate, whilst on their honeymoon vacation to the Cape in 1952. Megan sadly passed away in the prime of her life and Ken never remarried.

Notes on the 2014 vintage are not yet available.

Tasting notes on the 2015 vintage:
'A first release in 2015 - “we were waiting for the right Grenache”, says Carl Schultz - this SMG blend is firm, serious and quite backward at the moment. But dig below the oak and the tannin and there’s a fresh, balanced, ageworthy wine beneath. Drink 2022-28.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 95/100

Alc: 13.95% | RS: 2.2 g/L | TA: 5.3 g/L | PH: 3.57

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.
