Happy Harry's Direct Offer No. 13Hamilton Russell Chardonnay - 2020
Hamilton Russell Vineyards – one of the most southerly wine Estates in Africa and one of the closest to the sea – pioneered viticulture and winemaking in the beautiful, cool, maritime Hemel-en-Aarde Valley appellation, just behind the old fishing village of Hermanus. Tim Hamilton Russell purchased the undeveloped 425-acre 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. His son, Anthony Hamilton Russell, who took over in 1991 (finally buying the property in 1994), narrowed the range to only Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and registered Hamilton Russell Vine-yards as an Estate, committing to work only with grapes from their terroir. Today, Anthony and his wife Olive, wine-maker Emul Ross, and viticulturist Johan Montgomery are completely dedicated to expressing the personality of the Hamilton Russell Vineyards terroir in their wines. Tiny yields and intense worldwide demand keep the elegant, highly individual, estate-grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in very short supply.
Happy Harry’s is able to obtain the entire allocation of 42 bottles each year of the Hamilton Russell Chardonnay. Be the first one to try this year’s new 2020 vintage that will definitely impress your Thanksgiving guests with it’s pedigree!
Hamilton Russell Chardonnay—2020
A tight, mineral wine with classic Hamilton Russell Vineyards length and complexity. This white is racy up front, chiseling flavors of melon, ripe pineapple, nectarine and Mandarin orange mold into a linear frame, but then expands on the palate, with a lightly silky texture that carries the juicy fruit and expressive accents of pickled ginger, chopped hazelnut, lime blossom and smoke. An elegant, yet textured and intense wine with a strong personality of both place and vintage. A great accompaniment to any Holiday Table, drink now and until 2026!
