A stony white, sleek and well-knit, with hints of fresh tarragon and grapefruit zest accenting the delicate melon, fig and peach fruit. Drink now through 2024.

Looking for some “bang for ya buck?” Look no further than Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa. The wine shows the focus, texture and minerality of a wine twice it’s price!

Southern Right is the value line from one of South Africa’s great wineries Hamilton Russel. They specialize in Pinotage and Sauvignon blanc on a strikingly beautiful 448 hectare property in the cool, maritime, Hemel-en-Aarde Valley appellation, just behind the old fishing village of Hermanus. The wines are named after the rare Southern Right whales, which frequent the cool South Atlantic Walker Bay, 3 kilometres from the vineyards. With each bottle sold, Southern Right makes a contribution to their conservation.

Made in a way ensuring the personality of site and soil is not overridden 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 expresses 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.
