Saved from the plague of dry heat which affected many South African winegrowing regions by close proximity to the southern Atlantic, allowing perfect ripening. It's worth waiting a year or two for this to settle into the bottle, and lovely bright acidity will give this several more years of life ahead of it!
Founder, Tim Hamilton Russell purchased the undeveloped 170 hectare property in 1975. His son Anthony took over in 1991 and narrowed the range to just Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. One of the most southernly wine estates in Africa, Hamilton Russell Vineyards is located in the cool, maritime Hemel en Aarde Valley appellation, just behind the old fishing village of Hermanus. Anthony Hamilton Russell, along with wine maker Hannes Storm and viticulturist Johan Montgomery are commtited to expressing the personality of Hamilton Russell Vineyards Terroir in their wines.
Hamilton Russell wines express the classical style usually associated with Burgundy and are widely regarded as the best examples of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in South Africa.
A tight, minerally wine with classic Hamilton Russell Vineyards length and complexity. Unusually prominent pear and lime fruit aromas and flavours are brought beautifully into focus by a tight line of bright natural acid and a long, dry minerality. An elegant, yet textured and intense wine with a strong personality of both place and vintage.
