Hartenberg CWG Auction Shiraz 2018

100% Shiraz

As always, this wine is a blend of two high-end 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 a succulence.

Tasting Notes: Bright perfumed violets, spice and herbaceous Karoo aromatics on bouquet. The palate bold, rich on entry, softens to a melded elegance. Tannins velvety, yet typically evident due to stone soil fraction.

Ready for drinking between 2023 and 2040.

Winemaker: Carl Schultz
