Hamilton Russell Vineyards 2010 Chardonnay

Tag: Weingütersigi.hiss @ 09:24

Our team was extremely proud to hear that our Hamilton Russell Vineyards 2010 Chardonnay was selected as one of the “Year’s Most Exciting Wines” for the 2012 Wine Spectator’s Top 100 wines worldwide.

At position number 32 our Chardonnay is the second highest placed Chardonnay out of only five on the Top 100 and has achieved the highest place to date for a South African Wine. This beats the previous most highly placed South African wine, our 2007 Hamilton Russell Vineyards Pinot noir.

The Top 100 is not based solely on a wine’s score. A panel of editors debates a wine’s position and worthiness for inclusion, based on quality, value and excitement. Our 2010 scored 93/100. The Top 100 Wines are the front-runners in a line-up of more than 17,000 wines tasted over the year. Continue reading „Hamilton Russell Vineyards 2010 Chardonnay“
