Southern Right, Sauvignon Blanc 750ml 2020South Africa, Walker Bay
'Made in a way ensuring the personality of site and soil is not over-ridden by the forceful character of the variety, this wine exhibits the typical Southern Right balance of "Old World" minerality and length with hints of "New World" palate coverage and body. The 2020 is a wine that favours origin expressive individuality, minerality and palate complexity ahead of pure, pungent varietal aroma. A significant percentage of fruit from iron and clay-rich soil has added a mid-palate structural component and additional overall complexity to this wine. The Sandstone soils have contributed their typical bright, tensile character and a marked minerality.' – Winemaker
Alc: 13.3% | RS: 1.56 g/L | TA: 6.57 g/L | PH: 3.34
Tasting notes on the 2019 vintage:
'2019 was a small vintage at Southern Right because of the fire in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, but what the winery did make is promising if this very lightly wooded Sauvignon is anything to go by. Saline, sappy and grapefruity, with lemongrass and gunflint notes. Drink 2019-22.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 91/100
