Southern Right Pinotage 2018 South African Red Wine 750 mL

$29.99 $25.49

Southern Right is redefining 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 classical fruit aromas and
structure resulting from clay-rich soil, make this wine a highly individual expression of South Africa’s unique grape variety

Description

In 1994, Anthony Hamilton-Russell founded Southern Right Cellars as a Pinotage specialist, convinced that Pinotage has the intrinsic qualities to produce truly world-class wine with a distinct South African expression and typicity. As an early ripening grape, it is Anthony’s belief that Pinotage will perform best in cooler, maritime areas, where a longer, slower ripening season will afford fully developed tannins and a greater fruit complexity.

Ripe boysenberry, blackberry and cherry tones are accented by hints of game, licorice root and lemon oil in this well-balanced and accessible Pinotage. The palate is smooth and plush, with well-integrated tannins and enough acidity to balance the opulent fruit flavors
