Hartenberg Estate Auction Shiraz 2009

This wine combines two unique and contrasting places of origin. The best single barrel of our deep clay-rich Stork Shiraz vineyard was blended with two barrels of the stony Gravel Hill Shiraz vineyard. The former lends richness and power, whilst the latter provides elegance, finesse and longevity. Malolactic fermentation completed in barrel and the wine spent 22 months in 100% new French oak. Tasting Notes: Red-black rim with dark core. White pepper and truffle notes show on the bouquet entry. With some aeration, the wine opens up, showing violets, black fruit and hints of Garrique. The palate shows beautiful elegance and poise, silky polished tannins and a dry savoury finish. 50 cases of this wine were sold at the 2011 Auction.
