Hamilton Russell

Hamilton Russell Chardonnay 2022 Hemel-en-Aarde

In stock

Precise, mineral and complex. Aromas of pear and zippy lime are lifted by a tight acidity and a constant hum of flinty minerality. Extraordinarily elegant and classic.

Grapes are grown on a plot of low-vigour, stony, clay-rich, shale-derived soil. The harvest took place a touch later for the 2022 vintage as the preceding Winter was the wettest in 24 years and was followed by a
slightly wetter than average bud break to veraison period which inhibits shoot growth. Despite these challenges, the vintage proceeded smoothly and delivered beautiful, pure, generously textured wines. Yields, as always, were low, with Chardonnay coming in at 3,87t/ha (24hl/ha).
facilitating healthy, even budding After barrel fermentation, the wine undergoes 9 months of oak ageing; 40% in 300 litre French Oak Barrels and 56% in 228 litre.
