Kick the cold weather to the curb by revelling in some of South Africa’s finest Syrahs from leading cellars paired with an array of meaty indulgencies at the annual Feast of Shiraz & Charcuterie at Hartenberg Wine Estate on Saturday, 1 June 2013.
Carl Schultz, celebrated winemaker at Hartenberg, widely regarded as one of South Africa’s oldest and leading producers of Shiraz for almost 40 years, has invited a select group of winemakers to present their cellar gems at this indulgent day of Shiraz and Charcuterie. They will be joined by some of the best local charcuterie masters, cheese makers and olive enthusiasts that will bring foods to life to entice palates and complement this hardy varietal.
“Shiraz and charcuterie is a classic combination; the robust flavours created when curing or smoking meat complements Shiraz superbly. This festival is meant for everyone, whether you are a novice wanting to try something new or wine connoisseur on the hunt for fresh discoveries,” says Carl, who celebrates his 20th harvest at Hartenberg this year and has played an integral part in the estate’s Shiraz success story.
As the home of the world’s No. 1 Shiraz, The Stork 2008 as declared by Syrah du Monde in 2012 there is no better place to experience this varietal first hand than at Hartenberg Wine Estate.
