About this Item

Gravel Hill, 2005
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 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.
The 2005 was only the 2nd vintage to be released through the farm.

Critics Ratings

‘Savoury 2005 dusted with white pepper, packed with black olives; plush fruit wrapped around taut core. All-new oaking. From ferrous stone- on-clay vineyard.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2010, 4.5*

'Ripe and dense, but nicely refined, with stylish Kona coffee and mulled currant and loganberry fruit notes laced with melted licorice snap and spice. Liberally toasted, but integrated on the long, smoldering finish. Shiraz.' - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 91/100 (Jun 2010)
