HAMILTON RUSSELL 2012 PINOT NOIR

#29 WINE SPECTATOR "TOP 100" 2014
WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS
- “Alluring, with gorgeous toasted spice and cherry confiture aromas, backed by silky red currant, damson plum and cherry fruit flavors.”

Hamilton Russell Vineyards - the most southerly wine estate in Africa and the closest to the sea - is located in the cool, maritime Walker Bay wine appellation, in a beautiful valley behind the old fishing village of Hermanus. The estate specialises in producing highly individual, terroir-driven Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, which are widely regarded as the best in South Africa and among the best in the New World. Quite young and evolving, this has lovely aromatics and beautiful fruit clarity, understated and refined, with a feminine quality that only very well-made Pinot Noir can offer, that helps give it its allure. The nose brings forth a light earthy component to the herbal, underbrush and spice nuance that sits over the assorted red fruit tones of cherry, currant and plum. Medium-bodied, silky textured, with sleek, finer-tuned tannins, there’s a fine line of acidity that gives brightness and juiciness to the gorgeous red berry fruit flavors that mimics the nose. Showcasing beautiful fruit definition with just the right savoriness, this has terrific balance and wonderful hang time on the finish.
