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. The wines are named after the rare Southern Right whales, which frequent the cool South Atlantic Walker Bay, 3 kilometres from the vineyards, comprised 54% Clay-rich shale derived soil and 46% Table Mountain Sandstone derived soil.

2016 was another unusually early and short harvest - almost exactly the same timing as 2015. But as is wonderfully the case with nature, the character of the 2016’s is suprisignly different. The resulting wines for the classicists and purists will perhaps be seen as more typical of our style.

2016 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.

Pairs well with fresh fish dishes or goats cheese tarts and salads.
