Critic Reviews
92 points, Tim Atkin MW
“‘Pinotage can be very sweet,’ says Anthony Hamilton Russell, and the aim is to avoid that in this example, produced from various Walker Bay sources. Stony reduction and smoky bacon aromas segue into flavors of plum and black cherry and a sheen of subtle oak spices. Will age well in bottle. 2023-27”

90 points, Wine Spectator
"A bright, brambly red, with abundant herbes de Provence and sweet smoke accenting a core of ripe raspberry and blueberry fruit. Juicy, well-spiced finish. Drink now through 2026. 2,900 cases made, 720 cases imported."

About The Winery
Southern Right is a small Pinotage and Sauvignon Blanc specialist located on a strikingly beautiful 448 ha property in the cool, maritime, Hemel-en-Aarde Valley appellation, just behind the old fishing village of Hermanus. Founded by Anthony Hamilton Russell in 1994, Southern Right's aim was to produce a serious, age-worthy Pinotage (South Africa’s unique red grape variety) combining a distinct South African fruit and flavour expression with classic styling and refinement. The Southern Right Sauvignon blanc remains a local and international best-seller and has been listed as one of South Africa’s best wine values more than 5 times in the Wine Spectator. 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.
