"The 2017 Chardonnay is classy stuff all the way that’s 100% varietal aged mostly in French oak, with small amounts brought up in foudre, ceramic eggs, and stainless steel. Orchard fruits, pineapple, and white flower notes all emerge from the glass. It’s medium-bodied, beautifully textured, and seamless on the palate. With beautiful purity, vibrant, integrated acidity, and a great finish, it should keep for a decade or more." -- March/2018

Product Description:

Located in the cool, southerly, maritime Walker Bay appellation, in a beautiful valley behind the old fishing village of Hermanus; Hamilton Russell Vineyards specializes in producing internationally acclaimed Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Low vigor, stony soils that combine with cool breezes from the Atlantic Ocean help to produce naturally low yields over a long growing season. The combination of Hamilton Russell’s climatic and geological influences make it possible to create concentrated Chardonnay of great individuality and finesse. Gentle handling of the grapes throughout the winemaking process and traditional vinification techniques enable the Hamilton Russell team to aim for expression of origin and individuality. -- Winery
