THE REVIEW

This South African splendor will make Oregon, California and Burgundy Pinots blush with envy.
    Talk about over-delivering! Swirl the glass and fill the room with aromas of red berry and spice.

    Gorgeous dark cherry aromas are backed by lush red currant, plum and cherry fruit flavors. The long, spicy finish is silky and elegant. The "persistent and racy structure guiding alluring rooibos tea, blood orange, damson plum and singed wood spice notes. Drink now through 2020." Wine Spectator
    Hamilton Russell Vineyards is one of the most southerly wine estates in Africa and one of the closest to the sea. It is this maritime proximity, near the beautiful, cool Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, that produces terroir driven Pinot Noir. This is not only some of the best Pinot in South Africa, but in the world.
    Reserve yours today! From fish to lean meats, this Pinot provides some of the best elements of Burgundy (wonderful minerality), Oregon (zesty acidity) and California (vibrant, silky fruit).
    We can't think of a better way to sip and swirl in the New Year. Enjoy!Read More »
