The wine shows straw colour, with a touch of green. On the bouquet, intense grassy, tropical fruits, litchi and white flower aromatics show. The palate has a clean, vibrant entry that follows through to great mid-palate weight and fullness. The wine finishes long and creamy.
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.
