*7W* 2019 Hamilton Russell Chardonnay (Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, South Africa)

Weight: 7W

Varietal: Chardonnay

Region: Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, Walker Bay, Western Cape, South Africa

Hamilton Russell specializes in cool-climate Burgundian varieties from one of the most southerly vineyards in South Africa. The cool ocean air around the Hemel-en-Aarde district combines with the extra days of South African sunshine to create a chardonnay that combines the best of old- and new-world traits. White fruit and spice notes are balanced with elegant citrus and minerality, ending  in a long, complex finish.
