The wine is named in honour of Richard Hamilton’s father, Burton Hamilton (1904 to 1994) who was a viticulturist in South Australia for his entire working life. The site, selection, and resultant wine are a true expression of McLaren Vale terroir and fitting tribute to Burton’s pioneering spirit.
2019 Richard Hamilton ‘Burton’s Vineyard’ Bush Vine Grenache
Medium body with a lovely finesse and persistent texture. The wine has no residual sugar but the succulent and round tannins give the impression of sweetness. Fragrant black cherry and raspberry fruits with a very subtle influence of cedar through maturation in seasoned oak. The approachability of this wine lends itself as an aperitif and will match a wide range of cuisine. Excellent with duck, pasta and the soft acidity lends itself to Asian styles with a little spice and fragrance.
