Richard Hamilton Wines is family wine business that encompasses two of South Australia's leading wine labels in McLaren Vale and Coonawarra. With a strong wine industry heritage dating from 1837, the family has developed a distinguished international reputation for elegant fine wines. They are based on a simple philosophy – great wines are crafted from great vineyards.
McLaren Vale provides good climate for Chardonnay and growing conditions this vintage were ideal. Grapes were harvested while the acidity was still vibrant and sugar level not too high to retain elegance.
Fermented with a neutral yeast. The French oak used provides a subtle background to the fruit, while maturation on lees has helped provide the persistence of flavour.
The Almond Grove Chardonnay has lovely elegance with persistent stone fruit flavours. It is dry in style, medium bodied and finishes with a clean, bright, soft acidity. Fresh cut nectarine. Fragrant and fruit driven with a subtle influence of French oak. A beautiful modern styled Chardonnay.
An excellent companion for poultry, seafood or pasta.
