Southern Right, Pinotage 2020 Bottle size: 750mlSouth Africa, Walker Bay
'Southern Right is re-defining Pinotage with this intense classically styled, clay-grown wine, packed with complex berry fruit, beautiful tannins and subtle 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.' – Winemaker

Tasting notes on the previous 2019 vintage:
'I might be getting older, but is this really the 25th vintage of the Southern Right Pinotage? If so, it's one of the best yet. Part of what Emul Ross calls the "Pinotage renaissance", it's a bright, subtle, red-fruited number with minimal oak, silky tannins and just a hint of supporting oak. Drink 2021-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100
