Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2012 Pinot Noir was a season with a long hang time with an above-average size of crop - a season with no ups and downs, Hannes Storm explained. It has a perfumed, floral bouquet with wilted rose petals infusing the red cherries, bergamot and fresh strawberry scents. The palate is clean and pixelated on the entry, adorned with a satin-like texture, extremely well-judged acidity and superb poise on the finish. This has gained a little weight over the next 12 months and while I do not think it has the substance for serious long-term aging, it is absolute charmer at this stage.  (Oct 2014)

Wine Spectator 93 points - Alluring, with gorgeous toasted spice and cherry confiture aromas, backed by silky red currant, damson plum and cherry fruit flavors. Drink now through 2018.J.M. Wine Spectator 2014 Top 100 #29 (Feb 5 2014)

Producer
Located in the cool, southerly, maritime Walker Bay appellation, in a beautiful valley behind the old fishing village of Hermanus; Hamilton Russell Vineyards specializes in producing internationally acclaimed Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Low vigor, stony soils that combine with cool breezes from the Atlantic Ocean help to produce naturally low yields over a long growing season.

The combination of Hamilton Russellís climatic and geological influences make it possible to create concentrated Pinot Noir and Chardonnay of great individuality and finesse. Gentle handling of the grapes throughout the winemaking process and traditional vinification techniques enable the Hamilton Russell team to aim for expression of origin and individuality.
