Description

Southern Right Pinotage is a red wine made from grapes sourced a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean in the Hemel en Aarde Valley in the Walker Bay ward.

In 1994, Anthony Hamilton Russell (owner of Hamilton Russell Vineyards) founded Southern Right Cellars as a Pinotage specialist. In August 2005 some land to the west of Hamilton Russell Vineyards became available and Southern Right gained a permanent base of it own. The new winery was completed in 2009. The home of Southern Right Cellars is right outside of Hermanus, a town where people come from all over to watch the whales The longer, slower ripening period at Walker Bay affords more developed tannins and pronounced fruit aromas in this outstanding red. The wine is named after the Southern Right whales that can often be seen off Hermanus and for every bottle sold a contribution is made to the Southern Right Whale fund.

The grapes for Southern Right Pinotage are grown on low-vigour, stony, clay-rich, shale-derived soil. The wine is 100% barrel matured going through 100% malolactic fermentation, and barrel ageing of 10 months in 1st, 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels. The 2018 Southern Right Pinotage 100% Pinotage (previous vintages sometimes had a few other grapes varieties in the blend).
