Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc 2019

By , 11 November 2020

Southern Right was founded by Anthony Hamilton Russell of Hamilton in 1994 to explore the potential of Pinotage but today the volume of the Sauvignon Blanc under this label dwarfs that of its counterpart red – in 2019, there were 108 996 bottles of the Sauvingon produced compared to 13 824 bottles of the Pinotage.

The Sauvignon Blanc 2019 sells for R135 and is designed to have broad appeal without being facile. Grapes are sourced from across the greater Walker Bay area and vinification involves 4% barrel maturation for a bit of extra richness and breadth. Nothing too overt on the nose – subtle notes of citrus, white peach, fennel and a hint of sea breeze while the palate is pleasantly weighty with tangy acidity providing counterbalance, the finish possessing a slight saltiness.

CE’s rating: 90/100.
