Richard Hamilton Colton’s GSM 2020
The Hamilton family have a rich winemaking heritage dating back to 1837. In addition to owning Richard Hamilton Wines, they also founded and own Leconfield wines in the Coonawarra.
The first Richard Hamilton was originally a businessman in the UK with a penchant for smuggling Bordeaux into the UK. In 1837 he fled for Australia with customs hot on his heels and by 1841 produced South Australia’s first commercial wine. Generations of expansion and commercial success followed, and the brand kept moving south from Adelaide, eventually settling in the McLaren Vale. These days, drawing on a heap of high quality vineyards (many of which are old vine) Richard Hamilton produces a range of wines which are both superb in quality and excellent value for money.
