    Wines of South Africa, Tasting and Dinner at Silo, Brighton, 10 November 2016

    Our last tasting and dinner at Silo back in June was a great success, so we wanted to come back!  This time we will be showing a diverse selection of wines, including the fabulous range from Hamilton Russell Vineyards, the first producer to grow vines in the cool, maritime region of the Hemel-En-Aarde Valley.  It is from here they have been able to craft classically-styled wines, which have garnered the reputation as the source for some of the finest in South Africa and the New World. 

    "There's nothing between us and Antarctica, and our clay-rich soils make unusually European styled Pinot Noir and Chardonnay" - Anthony Hamilton Russell.

    Whilst primary attention has been in Hamilton Russell's Chardonnay and Pinot Noirs, they have also caused quite a stir with two other properties they own in this region - Southern Right and Ashbourne,  both harnessing Anthony Hamilton Russell's reputation as an exciting specialist with Pinotage and Sauvignon Blanc.  Their Ashbourne property was identified as one of South Africa's 4 "producers on the cutting edge" in the Wine Spectator and earned a place on their Top 100 most exciting wines of the year.

    We will offer a selection of 6 wines to taste before we sit down to a four course dinner specially prepared for this evening with matching wines.

    Menu details will be announced nearer the time and any special dietary requirements can be catered for.
