Rubinrot. Verspieltes Heidelbeeren und Walderdbeerenbouquet, Sauerkirschen mit zartrauchigem Tabak-Touch. Filigraner Auftakt mit weichem Gaumenfluss und angenehmem Fruchtdruck, mineralisches Extrakt und verblüffend kompakte Tannine in der jugendlich wirkenden Mitte, wirkt dadurch sehr dicht, enorme Reserven im rotbeerigen Finale mit Früchtetee und Kamille.

A tangy, racy style, boasting a core of mulled cherry, red currant and incense notes backed by a long, iron-tinged finish. Taut but vigorous, this should stretch out a touch with brief cellaring. Drink now through 2012. 4,237 cases made. -JM Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Western Cape in South Africa. 2008 Hamilton Russell Pinot Noir 750ml

Hamilton Russell Vineyards concentrates on only two grape varieties - Chardonnay and Pinot Noir - because they believe these are best suited for the terroir of Walker Bay, South Africa. It's ruby in color, with aromas of cherries and warm “winter” spices like vanilla and cinnamon.

A Pinot Noir wine from in South Africa. 2008 Hamilton Russell Pinot Noir 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

Our low-vigour, stony, clay-rich soil, cool maritime mesoclimate, naturally tiny yields of under 30 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 “primal” character along with a dark, spicy, complex primary fruit perfume.
