(2013 Vintage) 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.
Delish. Earthy dark fruit. Very dirty, which is a trait I have come to expect from South African wines. Deliciously musty but not in a moldy, corked way. Tasted a bit like I imagine the dirt in my garden would taste like if you added some just past prime blackberries to it. I opened this last night and it was good but it tastes a million times better after a day of airing out.
