As luck would have it, Shiraz grapes love poor,  gravelly soil - just the kind of soil in abundance on parts of the Hartenberg farm. The kind you need to produce world-beating Shiraz. Grapes were hand-picked and, after crushing, only 20% of the juice was drawn off for use in this wine. This juice was cold soaked overnight, then two Rhone-sourced yeasts were inoculated. The oak component was made up of 100% French.

Once again, Nature has smiled upon us because the very same vineyards on Hartenberg with the perfect soils for Shiraz, also have the perfect weather for it.

 
All Hartenberg has to do to make their award-winning Shiraz is harness what they already have, and stick it in a bottle. To be absolutely honest, it would be more difficult for us them produce a poor Shiraz on Hartenberg than a good one.
