Hamilton Russell VIneyards Pinot Noir

REGION: Walker Bay, South Africa

VARIETIES: Pinot Noir

VITICULTURE: Conventional

YEAR: 2020

ALCOHOL: 13%

INFO: Low-vigour, stony, clay-rich soil, cool maritime mesoclimate, naturally tiny yields of well under 35 hl/ha and a philosophy of expressing  terroir in their wines give rise to a certain tightness, tannin line and elevated length to balance the richness and generosity of the Pinot Noir.

After fermentation the wine is aged for a period of 10 months in 100% 228 litre French Oak Barrels (35% first fill, 47% second fill and 18% third fill) where is also undergoes malolactic fermentation.

It's 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.

Old World style Pinot Noir with a tannic line and savoury character
