Wine tasting notes

Our low-vigour, stony, clay-rich soil, cool maritime mesoclimate, naturally tiny yields of under 30 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. 2011 is a beautiful, finely-tuned wine with great elegance. It shows tremendous purity and clarity of fruit with excellent balance. It is lower in alcohol than the celebrated 2010 (95 points from Parker) and the fruit profile is more towards red forest fruits than the darker fruits of the 2010. The wine displays the characteristic Hamilton Russell Vineyards savoury hints and minerality, with the fine-grained tannin structure which results from our iron and clay-rich soils. -
