Each cellar aged bottle in the vertical carries a numbered print of a South African artwork from Anthony and Olive Hamilton Russell’s private collection. The aim is to distinguish a vintage not just by a number, but also by an image as well.

“While many enthusiasts have cellared Hamilton Russell Vineyards Pinot noir over the years, there are still a lot who only encounter the wine at a youthful stage. This vertical allows enthusiasts to really get to know our Pinot noir and its story of place over time and through different life stages.” - Anthony Hamilton Russell

Hamilton Russell Vineyards, Pinot Noir 2018
Featured artist: Gillian Hahn
'Every new release reveals a vintage of Hamilton Russell Pinot Noir that is again purer, finer and more distinguished than the previous vintage. The 2018 is no exception showing a broody dark fruited nose with lashings of black cherry, black currant and salted black plums. At this young stage, the oak is incredibly well integrated allowing both the purity of black berry fruit and the limestone minerality to really shine through. On the palate, alluring hints of blueberry and mulberry dance a tightly choreographed routine supported by a well drilled accompaniment of mineral tannins finishing with a long, sappy, black bramble berry finish. This must surely rank as one of the finest young Pinot Noirs produced at the winery to date. 2020 until 2035+.' – Greg Sherwood MW, 95/100

Hamilton Russell Vineyards, Pinot Noir 2020
Featured artist: Geena Wilkinson
'Bouncing back from the fires in 2019 - and then some - this is the best young Pinot Noir release I've tasted from Hamilton Russell. Representing a subtle shift in style towards greater perfume and fruit, this is a detailed, finely judged blend of clones 113, 115 and 667, with svelte tannins, tidy acidity, rose petal top notes and skilfully integrated oak. 2022-28.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 96/100

Hamilton Russell Vineyards, Pinot Noir 20121
Featured artist: Hendrik Botha Fourie
'The latest in an impressive run of Pinot Noir releases from the ever youthful Emul Ross, this estate red is more backward than the 2020 release, with some earthy grip and structure. Stylishly oaked in 29% new barrels, it's savoury and spicy, with 12% whole bunches, sinewy tannins and a core of plum, raspberry and dark cherry fruit. 2023-30' – Tim Atkin, MW, South African Special Report 2022, 95/100
