About this Item

The Mackenzie, 2007
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 Mackenzie is a limited volume single-vineyard flagship blend. The selection on auction constitutes the best vintages of the decade following the turn of the century.

Critics Ratings

‘Sultry 2007 tight-knit bramble fruits under veil of fine-grained tannins mid-2010, but dazzling fruit purity suggests immense pleasure in time. Cabernet plus lugs merlot & malbec. 22 months new French oak. 2006 (4.5 stars) was more restrained.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide, 5* (2011)
