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. The Mackenzie is a limited volume single-vineyard flagship blend.
‘Cab-led with dollop merlot/dash Malbec honouring family regenerating the estate. 2005 a marvellous exercise in restraint, 100% new Fr oak moulds around concert of black berries, tobacco & leafy glens. Beautifully crafted.’ Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2008, 5 stars
