Hamilton Russell Pinot Noir

The low-vigour, stony, clay-rich soil, cool maritime mesoclimate, naturally tiny yields of well under 35 hl/ha and a philosophy of expressing the terroir gives rise to a certain tightness, tannin line and elevated length to balance the richness and generosity of this Pinot noir.

Hamilton Russell 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.

92 Points, Wine Spectator 93 Points, Tim Atkin 90 Points, Christian Eedes "Very stylish and alluring, with blood orange, singed cinnamon, dark tea and lightly mulled cherry fruit notes weaving together, laced with a tangy mineral echo that stretches out the finish." 92 Points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
