Hamilton Russell Chardonnay 2020

Hamilton Russell Chardonnay 2020

$75.00

Lower in alcohol than the 2019 release – the vintage was cooler, explains Emul Ross – this nuanced Chardonnay combines grapes from 22 different blocks on the farm and confirms the wine’s status as one of the best examples in the Cape. Focused and saline, with subtle notes of struck match reduction, fine oak and some texture from 10% malolactic. Bravo!

A tight, mineral wine with classic Hamilton Russell Vineyards length and complexity. Prominent pear and lime fruit aromas and flavours are brought beautifully into focus by a tight line of bright natural acid and a long, dry minerality. An elegant, yet textured and intense wine with a strong personality of both place and vintage.
