Ashbourne Sauvignon Blanc Chardonnay 2018
A delicious and unusual South African blend of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, with a beautiful label!
Fresh, vibrant, perfumed Sauvignon blanc, filled-out and enriched with a carefully judged unwooded Chardonnay component, make this a beautifully balanced and highly versatile wine.
Hamilton Russell Vineyards were the first to grow vines in the cool, maritime region of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Tim Hamilton Russell planted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on previously uncultivated land in 1976, both rare varieties for South Africa at the time. The site he chose behind the old fishing village of Hermanus allows for unusually classically styled wines, which have garnered the reputation as some of the ﬁnest in South Africa and the New World.
Ashbourne is located on the eastern boarder of the Hamilton Rusell estate vineyards, and is a Pinotage and Sauvignon Blanc specialist.
