The palate is rich and sweet fruited with good tannin management, the wine possessing a winning smoothness and showing much less of the greenness that was starting to become an unfortunate hallmark of this cuvée recently.  The 2016 Pinot noir is deep coloured, tight structured, dark and spicy – built to last. It shows the layered, complex structure,tannins and spicy depth of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley with its iron rich soils Emul Ross the new wine maker since the 2015 vintage is improving Hamilton Russell by leaps & bounds. New biodynamic & organic are paying dividends on the vineyards & the winery.
