The 2014 Chardonnay has a very composed nose: hints of wild honey, citrus lemon, nutmeg and flint emerge from the glass, very nicely focused and gaining intensity with aeration. The palate is clean and fresh on the entry, superb volume in the mouth here with almond and coconut-tinged citrus fruit. I just appreciate the flow of this wine, the energy carried within and the precision on the finish. This is an outstanding Chardonnay from Hamilton-Russell. 

It was a pleasure to finally meet Anthony Hamilton-Russell, who had a habit of being out of the country whenever I visited the estate in Hemel-en-Aarde. We bumped into each other at the "Zoo Biscuits" party in Cape Town, then later in Hemel itself, where I tasted the valley's wines. Anthony is quite a character, more youthful in outlook than people half is age. He has been a tireless promoter of the region and no averse to airing views that can sometimes raise hackles. But that's often needed. Now, with respect to his two wines, I loved the white but the red left me scratching my head. I just had a very strange foxy scents that I couldn't get my head around. I actually returned to the wine a couple of hours later and it had ebbed away to an extent, but not totally. As I mention in my note, I'd like to return to this 2014 Pinot Noir in 12 month's time and see if it has settled down; in the meantime, enjoy the Chardonnay.
