2022 Pinot Noir, Hamilton Russell, Walker Bay

2022 Pinot Noir, Hamilton Russell, Walker Bay

Aromatic, smoky, and very intense, the 2022 Pinot Noir from Hamilton Russell is a real beauty. Notes of pink peppercorn and fynbos support the intense core of cherry fruit, while the tannins are present but refined. There's no hint of rusticity here; just a brilliant Pinot Noir.

Tasting notes

Rarely a Pinot Noir that one should be in a hurry to drink, the 2022 Hamilton Russell bottling needs time to develop and work its magic. This 2022 is comparatively serious and shuttered at the moment, with dark-fruited complexity, some clove spice from 10% whole clusters, grippy, sinewy tannins and stylish 36% new wood. 2025-32
