About this Item

2015 CWG Auction Shiraz
3 (1 x 3) 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 in its own self-contained valley on the slopes of the Bottelary Hills in Stellenbosch, 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.
The 170-hectare property has a pure water source running through it, and a number of birds and animals which call Hartenberg their home. As such, the owners and staff have accepted responsibility for the conservation of the property through considered and sustainable use of all natural resources. They have various initiatives in place to ensure an environment where nature thrives.

Critics Ratings

‘Consummate blend of the two illustrious Gravel Hill and The Stork vineyard parcels. 2015 refined, scented fruit and white pepper with a polished, lithe structure. Oak just 50% new, as in 2014 (4.5 stars, 93 pts). All elements in harmony. A worthy investment, long, rewarding life ahead.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2019, 5* (95/100)

‘Carl Schultz produces his CWG Shiraz bottling from a blend of Gravel Hill and The Stork. Closed, shuttered and dense, it's weightier and more serious than either with masses of chewy tannin and inky, satanic concentration. Very complex, but needs a lot of time in bottle. 2023-35.’ - Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2019, 93/100
