"Our low-vigour, stony, clay-rich soil, cool maritime mesoclimate, naturally tiny yields of under 35 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." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
Last year, Hamilton Russell winemaker Hannes Storm announced his departure after a decade behind the wheel, with Cape Chamonix's Emul Ross taking his place. Even with this big change, the estate has maintained their reputation for excellence, as the 2015 Hamilton Russell Pinot Noir is voluminous and highly aromatic with scents of ripe strawberries edged with notes of warm spice: cinnamon and bergamot. There's a fresh cut of acidity to its medium body along with great depth to the layered berry fruit flavors, finishing with chewy tannin and wonderful persistence.
