Hamilton Russell Pinot Noir 2018
Hamilton Russell Vineyards is one of South Africa's finest estates. Founded in 1975 by Tim Hamilton Russell, the estate is positioned on Africa's most southerly point, which benefits from a cool, maritime climate, in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley . Tim's son Anthony Hamilton Russell took over the management and ownership of the estate in 1994, and narrowed the range of wines to exclusively produce Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, believing these varieties were ideal for the terroir of the vineyards. Extensive soil research identified the stony, clay-rich, shale-derived soil as optimal for the individual, expressive style they aim for.
'Bravo to Hamilton Russell, who produce one of the finest New World expressions of Pinot Noir that I have encountered. When Hamilton Russell gets it right, they hit bullseye.' Wine Advocate
