2018 Pinot Noir, Hamilton Russell, Hemel-en-Aarde

Lots of deep and dark spice on the nose here, with blue fruit, and fine yet quite considerable tannins. Very savoury, this will need some time.

Tasting notes

This was showing quite a bit of oak and tannin when I tasted it, but Hamilton Russell Pinots are rarely showy in their youth, taking a while to develop complexity in bottle. Savoury, earthy and toasty, with plenty of backbone, grip and acidity and a core of sweet red beery fruit.
