Southern Right Pinotage 2018

Southern Right Pinotage 2018 extremely limited...

Tasting Notes

A vibrant and youthful dark plum, deep purple in color gives way to a somewhat shy nose, but with aeration notes of light wood spice come forth with an underpinning of dark plums and assorted red and dark red berry fruit aromatically. Medium bodied, this has some notable concentration and engaging fruit purity with dark red berry fruit flavors kissed with a touch of earth and subtle spice. The tannins are finer grained and nicely in tune with the fruit, giving a light powdery impression on the lengthy finish. As this opens up the palate becomes more supple and silky in texture, while the fruit offers layers of complexity that will become even more evident with more bottle age. This is still quite primary and in need of a year or two to really start opening up.

Food Accompaniments

Assorted grilled meats


Winemaker Notes

After the early and short 2015 and 2016 harvests, 2018, like 2017 was back to our usual timing, beginning at the end of the first week of February, but (a longer harvest) finishing at the end of the first week of March. 2018 was a standout red wine year with deep, complex structured wines and a marked purity of 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.
