ICONIC VINEYARD TASTING : HAMILTON RUSSELL VINEYARDS
June 25, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm£35.00
I am absolutely delighted to welcome one of my favourite wine producers in the world, and also arguably one of the most iconic South African producers, for a wine tasting at Loki Wines. It is a pleasure to invite Anthony & Olive Hamilton Russell to host a fantastic tasting showcasing the full range of their wines available in the UK. These two really are true icons of international wine and will be fantastic hear both of them talking about their great wines, and life in South Africa.
For those of you who don’t know this producer the Hamilton-Russell’s were the first people to plant cool climate Burgundy varietals (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay) in the Hemel-en-aarde Valley in South Africa. At the time people were planting big bold warm climate varietals in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, and people thought that the Hamilton-Russell’s were mad to be experimenting with Burgundy Varietals in the coastal region.
However, history has vindicated them and now they own some of the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards in South Africa, winning a raft of international awards, and being wines, that most serious wine collectors will have in their wine collection.
They also have their stunning Southern Right and Ashbourne Estates, where they try to show the potential of other varietals, in particular Pinotage, which incorrectly has a poor reputation for quality, whereas with the Hamilton Russell care and attention the variety blossoms in to something spectacular.
