"A rich and piercing white, with lemon zest, fleur de sel, chamomile and tarragon notes showing serious cut and drive through the rapier finish. A backdrop of lemon curd fills in the aftertaste. Gorgeous and distinctive. Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Semillon. Drink now through 2017. 726 cases made. -JM" (06/13)

90 Pts Neal Martin - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2008 Sandstone is a blend of 77% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Chardonnay and 3% Semillon made by the Hamilton Russell family. It sports a clear straw color in the glass. The nose is very attractive with scents of honeysuckle, wax resin, sea spray and a touch of damp straw that is well-defined. The palate is clean and focused on the entry with well-judged acidity. It feels full in the mouth but not viscous, with a patina of dried honey and dried quince. It fans out beautifully on the finish but maintains a tight control. You feel that this Sandstone is deserving of several years cellaring and yet its charms are difficult to resist now. This is so much better than the 2007 tasted previously." (10/13)


Description:

WINE:
"77% Sauvignon blanc, 20% Chardonnay, 3% Semillon. Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc and Semillon tank fermented, 3 months on lees contact. Both wines are only released when bottle ageing has created additional complexity and appealing secondary character. The Ashbourne Sandstone is grown on quartzitic sandstone soils which emphasise the nervous energy and minerality of Sauvignon blanc. Ashbourne is named after Anthony’s great, great grandfather Lord Ashbourne who was Lord Chancellor of Ireland in the late 1800’s. " -Importer

WINERY:
"When Anthony Hamilton Russell (owner of Hamilton Russell Vineyards and founder of Southern Right) returned to South Africa in 1991 he was enthused with the idea of creating something particularly classic and individual from South Africa's red grape variety Pinotage. At that time - and even to this day - Pinotage was not widely respected within the industry, despite some really exciting wines being made from the variety."

"The absence of French, Californian or Australian benchmarks to work towards, seemed to scare off many of the top winemakers and producers, who preferred to work with varieties or blends that somebody else had established a market for internationally and where the efforts of others had showcased the quality potential of the varieties or blends. The many ordinary wines made from Pinotage were blamed on the intrinsic character of the grape and not on the inappropriate choice of site or the viticulture or winemaking. It was Anthony's conviction that with the correct choice of site and soil and with the right viticulture and winemaking, great wine could be made from Pinotage. Furthermore, a wine could be made which was not defined by comparison to some other international region's benchmark." -Importer
