Hamilton Russell Chardonnay 2014


SKU 06377


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.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay has a very composed nose: hints of wild honey, citrus lemon, nutmeg and flint emerge from the glass, very nicely focused and gaining intensity with aeration. The palate is clean and fresh on the entry, superb volume in the mouth here with almond and coconut-tinged citrus fruit. I just appreciate the flow of this wine, the energy carried within and the precision on the finish. This is an outstanding Chardonnay from Hamilton-Russell.

Wine SpectatorVery alluring, with creamed Jonagold apple, heather, brioche and elderflower honey notes that all glide seamlessly, picking up an enticing hazelnut hint on the finish. Shows lovely mouthfeel and length. Drink now through 2017.
