- Notizen des Weinguts: „Hamilton Russell Vineyards – one of the most southerly wine Estates in Africa and one of the closest to the sea – pioneered viticulture and winemaking in the beautiful, cool, maritime Hemel-en-Aarde Valley appellation, just behind the old fishing village of Hermanus.
The Estate specialises in producing highly individual, terroir driven Pinot noir and Chardonnay, which are widely regarded as the best in South Africa and among the finest in the New World.
Anthony with his wife Olive, winemaker Emul Ross and viticulturist Johan Montgomery are completely dedicated to expressing the personality of the Hamilton Russell Vineyards terroir in their wines.“
- Anthony Hamilton Russell: “We are not so much using Hamilton Russell Vineyards to make Pinot noir and Chardonnay as we are using Pinot noir and Chardonnay to express the beauty and personality of Hamilton Russell Vineyards. Our terroir, in effect, "chose" these varieties as its most individual and beautiful expression.”
- Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Anthony Mueller: „With expressive Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Hamilton Russell is a safe bet for quality wines that show a sense of place with precision and focus.“
- Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Neal Martin: „I have a lot of time for Hamilton Russell. That's not to say that everything they touch turns to gold or that they create the best Pinot Noir in South Africa bar none. No, what I appreciate is a sense of honesty about their wines. They reflect the growing seasons, they are not infallible, yet they always have personality, wear their hearts on their sleeves.“
