Hamilton-Russell Winemaker Event, May 9, 2017
Please join us in welcoming Anthony Hamilton-Russell and his lovely wife Olive for a Pinot Noir retrospective. One of the most southerly wine Estates in Africa, this Pinot Noir and Chardonnay specialist pioneered viticulture in the beautiful, cool, maritime, Hemel-en-Aarde Valley appellation behind the old fishing village of Hermanus.
Anthony will walk us through each vintage, talk about the conditions, challenges and triumphs of each vintage. We will taste a flight of 5 (possibly 6) vintages of Walker Bay Pinot Noir. Vintages will include 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. Possibly 2015 if it arrives in time! And if time permits, we’ll also taste the current vintage of Chardonnay.
