2018 Hamilton Russell - Pinot Noir


2018 Hamilton Russell

Pinot Noir South Africa



Offers a lovely mix of gently steeped cherry, plum and raspberry fruit flavors, infused with singed anise, black tea and incense notes. A light mineral edge underscores the finish and the acidity is finely beaded. Drink now through 2021. 1,100 cases imported.–JM  Wine Spectator 93

The 2017 Pinot Noir, which includes 12% whole bunches, matured for 10 months in 37% new oak (François Frères). It has a light red currant and cranberry bouquet with just a hint of rooibos in the background, the oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly grainy tannin, crisp tart red cherry mixed with raspberry fruit and a nicely structured finish. Fine.
