Southern Right Pinotage 2020
Southern Right is re-defining Pinotage with this intense classically styled, clay-grown wine, packed with complex berry fruit, beautiful tannins and subtle wood spice. Full ripeness and the longer hang-time afforded by cooler sites, combined with the complex, more classic fruit aromas and structure resulting from clay-rich soil, make this wine a highly individual expression of South Africa’s unique grape variety.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Founded by Anthony Hamilton Russell in 1994 for specialising in a more refined style of cooler-climate, clay-grown Pinotage – with the aim of re-defining and energising the then less popular national grape. Another early-ripening grape, Sauvignon blanc, was chosen as the white wine partner, based on its proven affinity for the area. The property is named after the Southern Right Whales which frequent Walker Bay (at closest just over 2,000 meters from the property) and which indicate the strongly maritime growing conditions.
