Deep black - red in colour and spicy, earthy notes on bouquet entry. Also cloves, red and black berry fruit. The palate is rich , fruit-driven and has great balance. Fine, powdery tannins finish the wine.
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.
