The new vintage 2018 just arrived of this tasty Sauvignon Blanc! Southern Right is a small production estate located in the cool, maritime, Hemel-en-Aarde Valley appellation of South Africa. Founded by Anthony Hamilton Russell in 1994, Southern Right's Sauvignon Blanc remains a local and international best seller with its classic minerality complementing the variety's grapefruit and tropical fruit. It has been rated the best South African Sauvignon Blanc in the Wall Street Journal and has won numerous Gold and Silver Medals. 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 Southern Right whale conservation.

VinousThe 2019 Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc underwent a small natural ferment in barrel. It has quite a punchy nose, the nettle, gooseberry and Granny Smith apple aromas storming from the glass. The palate is fresh and lively on the entry. As usual, this is a somewhat uncompromising Sauvignon Blanc with pungent bell pepper and light asparagus notes, good weight and a tangy, marmalade-tinged finish whose residual salinity beckons you back for more. Excellent.

Neal Martin, November 2019
