Anthony took us to the tasting room in their Cellar to taste the Hamilton Russell line of wines. Chardonnay are after Pinot’s in our tasting. This was one of my favorite Chardonnays out of all the ones we tasted. Again, very Burgundian in style. Nice ripe, gentle fruit of citrus and tropicals. 13% ABV and mostly all neutral oak. Photos of, the Hamilton Russell Vineyard, Anthony’s pouring our tasting, barrels around our tasting, and a long view of their property and house on the hilltop.

Mineral and almost zinc, followed by lime, bright acidity, and pear. Doesn’t taste like Chardonnay to me but is very nice and more intense than usual for a white.
