    (Hamilton Russell Pinot Noir Estate, Hemel-en-Aarde Valley) Produced from Dijon clone 115, aged 10 months in 1-, 2-, and 3-year-old French oak. Medium ruby in color, with blue-purple tones. The ripe, spicy, floral nose is dominated by bold black- cherry and cranberry fruit. Bright acidity lifts the texture, while earthy spice adds depth.
