Winemaking: Each vineyard and bunch of grapes is hand-selected and picked before dawn to ensure no flavours are lost in the heat of the day. After de-stemming with about 10% whole berries, a fifteen day maceration is followed by fractional pressing with the free run and press juices being blended at a later stage. 70% of this wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrel, spending 18 months in 60% new and 40% second fill French oak. This wine is made to be aged for ten years or more.
Hartenberg Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
2 in stock
The Hartenberg Cabernet Sauvignon is delightfully perfumed wine with spicy vanilla oak and an abundance of red fruit and cherry aromas. Soft silky tannins on the palate with flavours of lead pencil, cigar box and sandalwood. A lingering finish persists.
Indpendent Tasting Note: “… it has a ripe, well-defined bouquet with blackberry, black olive, cedar and sandalwood. The palate is well-defined with plump black toasty fruit on the entry, good acidity and impressive structure towards the cedar-infused, fig-tinged finish.” Robert Parker (NM)
