The Megan

The MeganRed Blend 2014

History

The Megan is a tribute to Megan Mackenzie, wife of Ken "Stork" Mackenzie whose family still owns Hartenberg Wine Estate. Megan met Ken whilst still at school and once time passed, they got married and so started a twenty four year love story. Initially assisting in the family business, but also a celebrated harpist, Megan sowed the early seeds for the decision to later buy Hartenberg Wine Estate, whilst on their honeymoon vacation to the Cape in 1952. Megan sadly passed away in the prime of her life and Ken never remarried.

Tasting Notes

Vibrant red-black in colour. The bouquet shows crunchy red and black fruit, also spicy notes of aniseed. On the palate the wine reveals a wellbalanced elegance, then flavours of mixed herbs, strawberry, violets and more spice. Mid palate is succulent and silky soft. The wine ends with lingering, fine tannins.

Food Pairing

Slow roasted shoulder of pork, lamb rogan josh, caramelized roasted root vegetables, rib-eye steak or nutty hard cheeses
