An expression of what Hartenberg Estate is able to do with Shiraz in a younger, modern and upfront wine style. The Shiraz fruit is all Estate grown and includes younger parcels of Shiraz which are wonderfully expressive and offer earlier accessibility.
The label displays the original doorkeep on the historic doors of the Hartenberg underground facility, where the wine is matured prior to bottling. There is also a hidden/unspoken symbolism that the Doorkeeper Shiraz gatekeeps for the triumvirate of other Shiraz’s in the Hartenberg portfolio.
Beautiful cedary oak top notes on bouquet entry. Also aromas of cherry, dark chocolate and spice. The elegant palate is packed with berry fruits, more wood spice and fine dry tannins make for a long finish.
