 View a Condition Report



Located behind the old fishing village of Hermanus, Hamilton Russell is one of the most southerly wine estates in Africa. The property was purchased in 1975 by Tim Hamilton Russell and in 1991 his son, Anthony Hamilton Russell, took over and immediately narrowed their range down to only Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This proved to be a masterstroke and made the Hemel-en-Aarde valley notorious for producing the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in South Africa and a recognised expression outside of Burgundy. The 2007 featured at Number 52 in the Wine Spectator ‘Top 100 Wines of the Year’.

 

‘Bold, aromatic and ripe, but very elegant, with racy acidity providing the ground wire for the rich black cherry, bramble, incense and sweet earth notes, followed by a long, multifaceted finish.'  Wine Spectator, 93/100
