Hamilton Russell 2006 Chardonnay Walker Bay

Tasting notes: Judiciously controlled oak and nervy acidity in the fruit creates a pure, racy style in the best burgundian fashion. Worth knowing: Hamilton Russell is a burgundian specialist whose white wine, first bottled in 1983, has consistently been rated the top chardonnay in South Africa and among the best in the world.
