Hartenberg winemaker, Carl Schultz, won the Diners Club "Winemaker of the Year" award for the very fine 2004 Estate Merlot. Our 2005 vintage received the trophy for Best Merlot in the World at the  2008 International Wine & Spirits Competition in London.

Each vineyard was specially selected, and each bunch of grapes was hand-picked early in the morning.

The grapes were cold soaked for two days and the juice inoculated with a French-sourced yeast. The must was fermented and pumped over four times daily, followed by an extended maceration for ten days, and a fractional pressing.

After settling, the wine was moved to French oak for malolactic fermentation.
