At a previous Classic Wine Trophy competition ten Gold medals were awarded by the French judges to the 385 red wines. Most estates entered their flagship wines. Due to Hartenberg's uncompromising approach to standards they felt comfortable entering the pocketfriendly Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz. The wine won Gold. TASTING: Peppery and spicy with rich berry aromas. The wine has richness and elegant fruit flavours, the fruit / oak balance is stylish and has soft, smooth, silky "drink me" finish, with good strucutre and length. FOOD MATCH: The wine has the ability to grace all tables, from those where fine cuisine is offered to those where companionship and relaxation are preferred. Pizza with all its various toppings (but not too much chilli), all traditionally prepared meat dishes (ie. stews and grills), grilled or roasted game fish (ideally without a lemon based sauce) or for pudding. Pears in red wine (particularly if the red wine used is this wine!) will find a partner with this versatile wine.
