    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Hamilton Russell Pinot Noir is a full-bodied, dry red wine. This wine is 100% Pinot Noir, aged in wood barrels.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Cropped at 3.2tons/ha and raised entirely in French oak (45% new) the delectable 2009 Pinot Noir has a lifted bouquet of bright red cherries, red currant and a hint of dried blood. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins and a lovely caressing texture in the mouth, fine tension and poise with crisp red-berried fruits on the shimmering finish.

    The Wine Advocate

    Lovely black tea, signed apple wood and toasty wood spice notes lead the way, followed by racy black cherry, red currant and blackberry fruit, with a long, mineral-driven finish. This has range and depth, yet stays silky and very elegant.

    Wine Spectator

    A wild animal character and soft gaminess infuses the nose of thie classic South African Pinot, but the red cherry and plum flavors still take center stage on this delicate wine. Hints of forest bark and soft menthol grace the finish, while the soft tannins and balanced acidity carry long into the close.
