We always keep an eye out for up and coming Chardonnay worldwide and there is one producer in particular that has caught our attention in recent years – Hamilton Russell Vineyards from South Africa - currently the top vineyard in the country making the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in Burgundian-style.
Anthony Hamilton Russell took over the estate in 1994 and did profound research of the soil composition, that he identified 52 hectares of stony, clay-rich, shale-derived soil are ideal for vine growing. With the vineyard being situated close to the sea, it receives cool breezes making it an ideal ground to grow Pinto Noir and Chardonnay. After years of hard work in the vineyards, Hamilton Russell Vineyards is one of the top estates in the New World that offers wines with great similarity to that of the wines produced from Burgundy but with an unbelievable price tag that is hard to resist buying when it is available.
Luckily we have secured a parcel of Hamilton Russell Vineyards Chardonnay 2012 last week and have 28 bottles to offer! Having received undergone 6 years of ageing, it can be enjoyed the moment you receive the wine! At only HK$340 per bottle this is currently the Lowest Price in the World# -

Good full yellow. Wonderfully complex aromas of pear, wild herbs, sweet butter, smoke and tropical fruits; showed an iodiney minerality with air. Concentrated and harmonious but firm-edged, with brisk lemony acidity framing the very youthful flavors of stone fruits and minerals. Conveys a powerful impression of intensity without weight, like the best white Burgundies. Very young but smooth on the long, peach aftertaste. Outstanding potential here for a chardonnay that is often South Africa's best.
