Another day presented another opportunity for Katherine and I to go wine tasting. The 2nd stop on our list was the Hamilton Russell Vineyards. Quite a modest little tasting room building over looking a lovely dam, we sat outside and sampled their full wine selection.
The lady that was serving us entertained us with all the amazing wine awards and accolades that HR has won recently – pretty impressive I have to admit. I love Chardonnay and theirs is legendary, I tried it and absolutely understood why everyone talks about it – simply sensational.
I wish I had the budget to buy a bottle, but at almost R300 a pop and no special occasion coming up to justify this splurge, the bottle and I sadly had to part ways. Trust me though as soon as I have a good excuse to purchase this wine – I will! I was also really impressed by their red wines and their Ashbourne white.
