Hamilton Russell Pinot Noir 2014

Hamilton Russell Vineyards - the most southerly wine estate in Africa - is located in the cool, maritime Walker Bay wine region near the old fishing village of Hermanus. Founder Tim Hamilton Russell purchased the undeveloped 170 hectare farm in 1975; his son Anthony took over in 1991.The estate specialises in producing highly individual, terroir driven Pinot Noir and Chardonnay which are widely regarded as among the best in the New World. Extensive soil research in 1994 identified 52 hectares of stony, clay-rich, shale-derived soil as optimal for the individual, origin expressive style they aim for and all plantings have now been limited to this soil type.

Picked by hand into small open fermenters, followed by a cold maceration before fermentation. The wine then spends 9 months in small French oak barrels. The wine was made using 1/3 indigenous vineyard yeasts and only received a light filtration prior to bottling.


Tasting Note
Finely oaked, with aromas and flavours of raspberry, cherry and plum, with hints of game, develop to a deeper more complex, earthy, mushroom character with bottle age. The Pinot flavoured ripe sweetness is held together by fair tannins and perfect balance.

Everyday Serving Suggestion
Hailton Russell Pinot Noir is best served at room temperature to accompany roast or grilled red meats and rich pasta dishes.
