Hamilton Russell Vineyards

Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Chardonnay 2016

Very vintage golden glinted green, like brass that needs a polish.

Sits here nicely in the last of its best years.

Equal parts vanilla spiced whiskey and fleshy super sweet tropical fruits. Grilled pineapple, starfruit, banana, and orange liqueur.

The FMC Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc 2019

Powerful nose and palate of ripe yellow apples, lanolin, chamomile, ripe pear, guava, nutmeg and vanilla. Long, long finish. Beautiful! — 2 months ago

Hemel-En-Aarde Valley Pinot Noir

This is a BIG Pinot. Big, fruit dominated nose, with a little herbal spice on the back end, with hints of black olive and rose permeating throughout. Big palate and body, with an herbal, hay or thyme palate, tannic, with a salinity that’s prominent, with black olive, some tar, and even a smokiness hitting the end, with dark cherry, plum, and a peppery spice showing up loud on the palate. Really good entry to South African Pinot. — 15 days ago

Treinspoor Swartland Tinta Barocca 2022

Interesting wine. Very sweet almost jammy sensation at first, reminding me of a Zinfandel, but it it set my palate to the point that it became more balanced with darker dryer undernotes. It was very balanced and focused. Good acidity and fine integrated tannins, so we kept drinking it and we’re actually sad when it was all gone. — a month ago

Lots of bottle variation with this one. One not so good, one really wonderful, this one in between. Nice with dinner. — 2 months ago
