Always a winner, Hamilton Russell Chardonnay 2020 has a beautiful lemon curd and natas custard tart nose, honeydew melon, creme patissierre and crushed stones. Exotic fruit on the palate with some showiness there - nut butter, moringa flowers and sweet citrus, with a tangy, macerated yellow pepper fab acid structure. Superb!
One of the most southerly wine Estates in Africa, this Pinot noir and Chardonnay specialist pioneered viticulture in the beautiful, cool, maritime, Hemel-en-Aarde Valley appellation behind the old fishing village of Hermanus.
FROM THE PRESS
“The most remarkable HR Chardonnay I have ever tasted. With stunning depth and juiciness, plush, but controlled oak and serious length, this is a phenomenal creation. There is exquisite balance here, too, and all of this class and luxury sits atop stiletto-sharp acidity and a restrained 13.2% alcohol level. Pound for pound, this wine is in contention for Chardonnay of the Year””Matthew Jukes
