Peppery and spicy with rich berry aromas. The wine has richness and elegant fruit flavours, the fruit / oak balance is stylish and has soft, smooth, silky "drink me" finish, with good structure and length.
Hartenberg is nestled in a valley on the free-draining, north-eastern slopes of the Bottelary Hills. Vineyards face north, west, and east, with varietals planted to take advantage of either morning or afternoon sun. There is a difference in altitude of some 250 meters between the northern and southern vineyards.
