About this Item

Gravel Hill, 2009
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.
Previously only released through the CWG, the Gravel Hill Shiraz holds the record for the longest Guild ‘accreditation’. 

Critics Ratings

‘Powerful yet polished & taut 2009 reflects top vintage & gravelly site. Leashed black fruit whispers rather than shouts. Light, powdery violet subtext to refined, concentrated palate. Genteel backbone & length from 22 months all-new French oak. Effortlessly refined.’ – Platter's SA Wine Guide, 4.5*
