2015 Hamilton Russell Pinot Noir
Walker Bay, South Africa

Lovely red fruits abound together with spices, cinnamon or allspice perhaps, and has a solid, satisfying finish. Should cellar nicely for several years if you are the patient sort.

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."
