Hamilton Russell Chardonnay 2022 Hemel-en-Aarde, South Africa, 75cl
Hamilton Russell Chardonnay 2022
Hemel-en-Aarde, South Africa, 75cl
Hamilton Russell Chardonnay 2022 hails from an exceptional vintage, with a warm January tending to healthy ripening of the grapes. Yields, as is always the case for Hamilton Russell wines, were low but of exceptional quality with fantastic fruit purity and acidity. Fermented and aged for 9 months in 68% 228 litre and 26% 300 litre French Oak Barrels, producing a wine of complexity, layered elegance and liveliness. The nose shows prominent pear and lime fruits with floral nuances. This leads beautifully into a focused, tight line of bright natural acidity and a long, dry minerality. An elegant, yet textured and intense wine with a strong personality of both place and vintage.
“17 Pts - More nose than most Hemel Chardonnays. Almost opulent! Rich start and then very fresh with some salinity and lots of impact on the palate. Lemon cream, with light chewiness but not aggressively so.” - 17 Pts, Jancis Robinson
