Hamilton Russell Chardonnay Vineyards Hemel-en-Aarde 2014, South Africa

Country: South Africa

Colour / Style: White

Featured in: Episode 11

As chosen by: Joe Fattorini

A wine that changed South Africa. Not just for being one of the first to be globally recognised as one of the great wines of the world. Anthony Hamilton-Russell and his family are steeped in radical politics and were pioneers in creating a post-Apartheid, equitable wine industry. Drink like a fine burgundy with white meats and firm-fleshed fish to complement the pear and citrus fruit and fine oak.
