95 points, “The crop was tiny in 2018... but the quality and style of this celebrated Chardonnay is as good as ever.” – Tim Atkin
Hamilton Russell Vineyards produce long, complex and beautifully intricate wines; somewhat like an English country garden maze that you wouldn’t mind getting lost in. The Chardonnay 2018 is no exception, displaying Mirabelle plum tart, baked pear, lemon curd, lime leaf, beeswax candles, marmalade, honeysuckle and a combination of yeast, spice, warmth and nuttiness reminiscent of a Nordic bakery. Described by leading wine critics as “beautiful” (Wine Advocate) and having “an ultra tight, pinpoint textural finesse, plenty of core energy and a classically restrained Burgundian dry lemon and limestone finish” (Greg Sherwood MW), this is not a wine to be missed, especially in this decadent magnum format.
Located right next to the sea behind the fishing village of Hermanus in Hemel-en-Aarde Valley – an aptly named heaven on Earth – Hamilton Russell is one of South Africa’s finest wine producers. That maritime influence makes this a perfect choice for seafood, buttery fish dishes and rich, garlicky, creamy sauces.£5.67 per 100.00ml
