Hamilton Russell Vineyards

Hemel-En-Aarde Valley Pinot Noir

This is a BIG Pinot. Big, fruit dominated nose, with a little herbal spice on the back end, with hints of black olive and rose permeating throughout. Big palate and body, with an herbal, hay or thyme palate, tannic, with a salinity that’s prominent, with black olive, some tar, and even a smokiness hitting the end, with dark cherry, plum, and a peppery spice showing up loud on the palate. Really good entry to South African Pinot. — 9 months ago

Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge Pinot Noir

Well, color me surprised. I’ve been to South Africa twice mainly in the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek areas but I’ve never had a Pinot noir from there. This was a revelation. I have to admit we were first eating it with an Indian style sausage and beet curry so it initially did not go well at all. After drinking it apart from the food, it was delicate and lovely. Definitely a nose of earthy forest floor and herbaceous drinking to very light, almost strawberry flavor to it. Well, balanced sweetness without being cloying and juicy enough to go well with what our dessert cheese course was.  — a year ago
