Big, bold and rich. 80% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Carignan. So much going on in this wine. Aromas of milk chocolate covered cherries, wet stones and earthy spices. Lush red fruit flavors with notes of cola, blueberries and grilled herbs. A hint of chocolate fudge on the bright finish. Medium tannins and velvety texture. Excellent! — a month ago
Cheers to the wines of South Africa 🇿🇦
This Hamilton Russell Pinot Noir is unique in that the grapes used to produce it primarily came, not from Hamilton Russell vineyards, but rather from neighboring vignerons.
Hamilton Russell made this unprecedented decision in the aftermath of devastating wild fires that imparted smoke taint to its estate-grown grapes. Unwilling to compromise on quality, I applaud Hamilton Russell for its tenacity and willingness to forge ahead to create this delicious Pinot Noir for its customers. 👏👏👏
This wine is comprised of fruit hailing from three different Hemel-en-Aarde (aptly meaning “heaven and earth”) Wards within the Walker Bay District, in the Cape South Coast Region of South Africa’s Western Cape.
This wine is a reflection of community, camaraderie, and commitment to excellence.❤️
