Gravel Hill Shiraz, 2008
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
With a rich history that dates back to 1692, Hartenberg has passed through the legendary families of Finlayson and Gilbey until the late Ken Mackenzie purchased the estate in 1987. Situated on the slopes of the Bottelary Hills, the terroir is renowned for fine quality and ageability. CWG member Carl Schultz has presided as the head winemaker for over 25 years and has produced world class, powerful reds. 
Previously only released through the CWG, the Gravel Hill Shiraz holds the record for the longest Guild ‘accreditation’.

One of a quintet of very different shiraz's. This is from estate’s best site – dry gravelly, strewn with koffieklip (‘coffee stones’) – yielding appropriately mineral, savoury, elegant shiraz. 08 is winemaking at its apogee; ethereal, spicy, very polished, with powerful fullness of flavour.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2013, 4.5*

‘The source of this impressively, tightly-wound Syrah is “stone, not soil” according to winemaker Carl Schultz. It’s a dense, even slightly reticent wine with lots of power in reserve, firm tannins, smoky, savoury oak and ripe, chocolate and blackberry fruit flavours. The stony minerality kicks in on the finish. Drink 2015-20’ – Tim Atkin SA Wine Report 2013, 94/100
