Hartenberg Estate Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon
Hartenberg, Cabernet Sauvignon is the King of Red Wines, consistently a show stopper and delivers even better with some aging to it. Vineyards are planted on deep red Hutton and Avalon soils.
Each vineyard and bunch of grapes at Hartenburg 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. If your taste buds will let you wait that long.
Hartenberg, Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of cigar box, lead pencil nose with cassis and cherry flavours. Juicy fruit with an elegant finish.
