Southern Right is situated in the cool climate hills overlooking the breathtakingly beautiful Walker Bay south of Cape Town. The winery is named for the southern right whales, which enter the bay each year. This tiny winery specializes in two wines, the red pinotage (a unique hybrid developed in South Africa) and sauvignon blanc. The Southern Right 2003 Sauvignon Blanc behaves neither like the occasionally high-voltage versions from New Zealand nor the rich and weighty California model. Instead we get a delightfully elegant and restrained wine with long flavors of citrus and pear, a bit of mineral and a slightly herbal lemon-butter finish. The winery donates a portion of all sales to a southern right whale conservation fund.
Producer
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.

In partnership with winemaker Kevin Grant, the team initiated plantings on four carefully chosen, clay rich sites in the cool, maritime Walker bay appellation. Following in-depth soil research on Hamilton-Russell vineyards, Anthony and Kevin were able to discern that the most site-expressive and complex wines will be produced off of the stony, clay-rich Bokkeveld shale soils in the area. In 1998, a 113 hectare farm in the beautiful Hemel-en-Aarde Valley near Hermanus, was purchased as a central home for the Southern Right Cellar.

The first Southern Right Pinotage and Sauvignon Blanc were released in 1995. Plans over the long term are to produce up to 10,000 cases each of Pinotage and Sauvignon Blanc. The focus of Southern Right Cellars will always be to achieve the highest possible degree of quality, individuality and site expression.
