Hamilton Russell Vineyards

Oz Clarke, wine writer, UK ".... superb, restrained, Burgundian Chardonnay and Pinot noir that set a standard for the rest of the hemisphere..."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. Founder, Tim Hamilton Russell, purchased the undeveloped 170 hectare property in 1975, after an exhaustive search for the most southerly site on which to make South Africa’s top cool climate wines from a selection of noble varieties.

Tasting Notes

Tim Atkin, describes it as “South Africa's best Chardonnay — elegant and beautifully poised.”A tight, minerally wine with classic Hamilton Russell Vineyards length and complexity. Unusually 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.

Food Matches

Great accompaniment to Roast Chicken or Roast Pork.
