Founded by Antony Hamilton Russell in 1994, Southern Right's aim is to produce serious, age-worthy Pinotage combining a 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 soils on the sites chosen for the vineyards are perfect for creating the intended classic style.
Rigorous yeild management and care to harvest at full ripeness combine with the terrior to re-define South Africa's red grape variety. The Sauvignon Blanc retains tight minerality complementing the prominent varietal fruit. The wines are named after the rare Southern Right whales which frequent the nearby Walker Bay. With each bottle sold, Southern Right makes a contribution to their conservation.
