Southern Right Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc 2014 750ml 2018
|Region||South Africa, Walker Bay|
Made reductively in order to maximize the fruit personality of the vintage, the 2014 shows more marked fruit aromatics than usual, while maintaining the typical Southern Right balance of Old World minerality and length with hints of New World palate coverage and body. 2014 is a wine that favors origin expressive individuality, minerality and palate complexity ahead of pure, pungent varietal aroma. A significant percentage of fruit from clay-rich soil has added an intense mid-palate structural component and addition overall complexity to this wine.
Bright yellow. Vibrant aromas and flavors of lemon zest and gooseberry. Serious, firm, austere Sauvignon with excellent inner-mouth precision and energy. Finishes with a touch of tannic firmness and excellent minty lift. Rather austere and lean for this bottling.
Lovely lemon curd and verbena notes form the core, with threads of time, mâche and fleur de sel. Straw hints caresses the finish.
