Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc SA0034


Tasting Notes

Made reductively in order to maximize the fruit personality of the vintage, the 2014 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. 2014 is a wine that favours origin expressive individuality, minerality and palate complexity ahead of pure, pungent varietal aroma. A significant percentage of fruit from clay-rich soil has added an intense mid-palate structural component and addition overall complexity to this wine.

About The Producer

Southern Right

  • Southern Right

    Founded by Antony Hamilton Russell in 1994, Southern Right's aim is to produce serious, age-worthy Pinotage combining a distinct South African fruit and flavour with classic styling and refinement. Pinotage is best suited to cooler areas such as behind the old fishing village of Hermanus where the stony, high clay content soils on the sites chosen for the vineyards are perfect for creating the intended classic style.

    Rigorous yield management and care to harvest at full ripeness combine with the terroir to re-define South Africa's red grape variety. The Sauvignon Blanc retains tight minerality complementing the prominent varietal fruit. The wines are named after the rare Southern Right whales which frequent the nearby Walker Bay. With each bottle sold, Southern Right makes a contribution to their conservation.
