The Southern Right Pinotage is made to accentuate fruit purity and elegance with refined characteristics. The 2019 Southern Right Pinotage shows lots of personality with concentrated red ripe berry fruit flavors on its medium body frame. Sleek in texture it becomes suppler with aeration, the fruit having good vibrancy and lift while the tannins are powdery making this something that will really develop nicely with a few years of extra bottle age. This plays on the Pinot side of the varietal with cooler climate suggestions to the fruit.
Southern Right is re-defining Pinotage with this intense classically styled, clay-grown wine, packed with complex berry fruit, beautiful tannins and subtle wood spice. Full ripeness and the longer hang-time afforded by cooler sites, combined with the complex, more classic fruit aromas and structure resulting from clay-rich soil, make this wine a highly individual expression of South Africa’s unique grape variety.
