Hartenberg Cabernet Shiraz 2015
Stellenbosch, South Africa
A blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Shiraz, 3% Petit Verdot and 3% Petit Verdot. Aged for 15 months in French oak. Vibrant red fruit, plums and cassis aromas from the Cabernet Sauvignon combine well with black pepper undertones from the Shiraz. The palate is brimming with crunchy fruit with soft tannins and a velvety finish. Great pairing with pizza, meat dishes, grilled or roasted game fish.
