Hartenberg Estate Auction Shiraz 2009

100% Shiraz 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 was carried out in barrel and the wine spent 22 months in all-new, French oak barriques. Tasting note: Red – black rim with dark core. White pepper and truffle notes show on bouquet entry. With air, the nose opens to show violets, black fruit and hints of Garrique. The palate shows beautiful elegance and poise, silky, polished tannins and a dry, savoury finish. Drink 5 – 10 years from vintage.

Winemaker: Carl Schultz
