Hamilton Russell 2015 Pinot Noir
100% Pinot Noir | Alc: 13.5% – Supple and Smooth
Hemel-En-Aarde Valley, Hermanus, Cape of Good Hope, South Africa
Our low-vigour, stony, clay-rich soil, cool maritime mesoclimate, naturally tiny yields of well under 35 hl/ha and our philosophy of expressing our terroir in our wines – give rise to a certain tightness, tannin line and elevated length to balance the richness and generosity of our Pinot noir. Our Pinot noir is not overtly fruity, soft and “sweet” and it generally shows hints of that alluring savoury “primal” character along with a dark, spicy, complex primary fruit perfume.
“Gorgeous, with a silky, persistent and racy structure guiding alluring rooibos tea, blood orange, damson plum and singed wood spice notes along.” 93 Points – Wine Spectator
