Cape Winemakers Guild

Hartenberg CWG Auction Shiraz 2016

As always, this wine is a blend of two single sites at Hartenberg. A single barrel of the flagship Gravel Hill, growing in iron ferricrete soils was blended with two barrels of near neighbour, The Stork Shiraz that grows in deep, clay-rich, ochre-coloured Tukulu soil. The former lends tannin and backbone to the blend, whilst the latter contributes intense berry fruit and succulence. The preceding vintage, 2015, was the only CWG Auction wine to receive a Platter’s 5 * in their 2019 Guide.

Tasting Notes: White pepper and perfumed notes on the bouquet. The palate entry is supple and elegant, whilst the mid-palate shows spicy, garrigue and black berries. Ends with a richness of fruit and fine, dry tannins.

Drink from 2021 to 2031.

Winemaker: Carl Schultz
