"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 savoury "primal" character along with a dark, spicy, complex primary fruit perfume." - Winery Notes
Producer
Located in the cool, southerly, maritime Walker Bay appellation, in a beautiful valley behind the old fishing village of Hermanus; Hamilton Russell Vineyards specializes in producing internationally acclaimed Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Low vigor, stony soils that combine with cool breezes from the Atlantic Ocean help to produce naturally low yields over a long growing season.

The combination of Hamilton Russell’s climatic and geological influences make it possible to create concentrated Pinot Noir and Chardonnay of great individuality and finesse. Gentle handling of the grapes throughout the winemaking process and traditional vinification techniques enable the Hamilton Russell team to aim for expression of origin and individuality.
