Made in a way ensuring the personality of site and soil is not over-ridden by the forceful character of the variety, this wine exhibits the typical Southern Right balance of “Old World” minerality and length with hints of “New World” palate coverage and body. The 2021 is a wine that favours origin expressive individuality, minerality and palate complexity ahead of pure, pungent varietal aroma. A significant percentage of fruit from iron and clay-rich soil has added a mid-palate structural component and additional overall complexity to this wine. The Sandstone soils have contributed their typical bright, tensile character and a marked minerality. Pairs well with fresh fish dishes or goats cheese tarts and salads.

Description

Founded by Anthony Hamilton Russell in 1994, Southern Right’s aim is to produce serious, age-worthy Pinotage combining 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, shale-derived soils chosen for the vineyards are perfect for creating the intended classic style of the wines.

The wines are named after the rare Southern Right whales, which frequent the cool South Atlantic Walker Bay, just three kilometres from the vineyards. In August 2005, when the 448 ha farm on the western border of Hamilton Russell Vineyards became available, Anthony acquired the unique property as a permanent home for Southern Right and the Cellar was completed in time for the 2009 harvest.
