Southern Right Pinotage 2020
Southern Right Pinotage redefines what you know about Pinotage. Intense and classically styled with complex berry fruit and subtle wood spice aromas. Dry and medium-bodied on the palate with beautiful tannins and a juicy acidity. Ripe black plum, blackberry and red cherry flavours with hints of coffee and pepper.
100% Pinotage. The fruit comes from different vineyards with 20% from Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, 44% from Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, 2% from other Walker Bay and 34% from Swartland. The vineyards experience cool maritime climates since they are located close to the sea and have low-vigour, stony, clay-rich, shale-derived soil.
The wine ages for 9 months with 56% in 228 litre French oak barrels and 44% in 400 litre French oak barrels.
