Mouthwatering, with lots of lemon zest, chive, gooseberry and flint notes, backed by an extra twinge of fleur de sel. Focused, pure and delicious. Drink now. 2,300 cases imported.-WS
The 2020 shows more marked fruit aromatics than usual, while maintaining the typical Southern Right balance of Old World minerality and length with hints of New World palate coverage and body. 2010 is a wine that favors origin expressive individuality, minerality and palate complexity ahead of pure, pungent varietal aroma. A large percentage of fruit from clay-rich soil in 2010 has added an intense mid-palate structural component and addition overall complexity to this wine.-Winemaker Notes
Founded by Anthony Hamilton Russell in 1994, Southern Rights aim is to produce a serious, age-worthy Pinotage (South Africas unique red grape variety) combining a distinct South African fruit and flavor expression with classic styling and refinement. In 2005, a stunningly beautiful 1,125 acre property on the western border of Hamilton Russell Vineyards was purchased as a long-term home for Southern Right, and in 2009, a 350 ton Overberg-style cellar, was completed on the property just in time for the 2009 harvest. Today the winery produces a Pinotage and a Sauvignon Blanc. The wines are named after the rare Southern Right whales, which frequent the cool South Atlantic Walker Bay, two miles from the vineyards. With each bottle sold, Southern Right makes a contribution to their conservation.-Winery Notes
