Hartenberg Estate Riesling 2018 Stellenbosch
Old vine dry Riesling from this top estate, one of the best examples from South Africa and a great price too
This old Stellenbosch estate was founded in 1692 and owned since 1986 by the Mackenzie family. The wines and vineyards have been overseen by winemaker Carl Schultz since 1994. Their superb dry Riesling was first produced in 1984 and is now recognized as one of South Africa’s best. From old vines picked in the cool of the early morning for freshness, always with a portion of Botrytis affected grapes which add richness, then fermented with selected Austrian yeasts in stainless steel tanks. The result has attractive lemon limey freshness but honeyed depth and lots of length, great with fusion food.
